A powerful and poetic novel from the multi-award-winning author of Tangleweed and Brine

Ces longs to be a tattoo artist and embroider skin with beautiful images. But for now she's just trying to reach adulthood without falling apart.
Powerful, poetic and disturbing, Needlework is a girl's meditation on her efforts to maintain her bodily and spiritual integrity in the face of abuse, violation and neglect.
`Reading Needlework is similar to getting your first tattoo - it's searing, often painful, but it is an experience you'll never forget.' - Louise O'Neill , author of The Surface Breaks and Asking For It
`Needlework is a powerful novel that deserves to be read.' - Sarah Crossan , author of One and We Come Apart
`I loved Deirdre Sullivan's Needlework , a novel that is just as sharp and precise as its title suggests.' - Doireann Ni Ghriofa , poet
`A modern, broken fairy tale that gets under your skin.' - Tara Flynn , author and comedian
