The Pink Cage

Derbhile Dromey will launch her debut novel The Pink Cage on Wednesday June 15th at 7pm in the Clonmel Library, Emmet Street, Clonmel, Co Tipperary.

About the Book

A novel about a love that’s not quite forbidden; and a girl with hair the colour of day-old snow. The girl in question is Astrid Johnson, a 26-yearold freelance proof-reader and DJ who has eyes that do their own thing. Astrid inhabits two distinct
worlds, a world of beats and flashing lights and a world of dusty books and seawater. A cool, fearless type, Astrid is persuaded to go on a skiing trip for the visually impaired. The night before the trip, the sexual tension between Astrid and Jazz, the man with three names, explodes… With its pulsing soundtrack and disembodied electronic voices, The Pink Cage is a novel that you can hear as well as see. If you like books that expose the extraordinary worlds hidden beneath the surface of ordinary life, you will love The Pink Cage.
