Product description


'A beautifully assured debut that is part love story, part psychological slow-burner. A clever and graceful tale that weaves its way through the cracks of our everyday perceptions to skillfully explore complex issues around illness, grief and longing. Tierney's characters sing with a dark, sharp, tender realness. Combining exquisite descriptions with scalpel-sharp human insights, this is a book to languish in, and emerge from deeply moved. It marks the arrival of an elegant and thrilling new voice in literary fiction.' --Emma Jane Unsworth

'If, for example, you're expecting this to be a conventional romance - boy meets girl and rescues her from her dreary man-less existence - you'd be very wrong. While Miriam may initially feel she needs a love life, she quickly realises self worth should be reliant on nobody - nor thing - but herself.'--Manchester Confidential

'It's a brilliant debut, compelling, darkly funny, exquisitely written, and tenderly candid about the realities of being a single woman in her late twenties living in a big city.' --Nicola Mostyn

'This is a simply riveting and unfailingly entertaining read that showcases her genuine flair for a narrative driven fiction populated by deftly crafted and memorable characters. "Making Space" will prove to be an enduringly popular and appreciated addition to personal reading lists and community library Contemporary General Fiction collections.' --Midwest Book Review
'There's a nice ambiguousness, or ambivalence, here: hope edged with realism. --Book Munch
