Breaking point: burned out and bottoming out

City of Books


In this episode of City of Books, Martina Devlin talks to Edel Coffey about her debut novel.

Breaking Point tells of a high-powered career woman who accidentally leaves her baby in the car on a boiling hot day – with tragic consequences. Amid the guilt and grief, she is put on trial for manslaughter. Inspired by a true story.

City of Books is a podcast supported by Dublin UNESCO City of Literature in association with MoLI. Produced and presented by Martina Devlin. Music by Daragh Dukes.
