Her fifth book, the bestselling memoir Corpsing, was shortlisted for an Irish Book Award and the Michel Déon Prize for non-fiction. Sophie’s sixth book, Where I End, won her the Shirley Jackson Award in July 2023 and was described as “brilliantly visceral” by the Guardian and “exquisite and disturbing, brutish and beautifully crafted” by the Irish Times. Her seventh book and fifth novel, My Hot Friend, came out in May 2023.
