Spill Simmer Falter Wither

Sara Baume’s Spill Simmer Falter Wither is a different kind of love story. A misfit man finds a misfit dog; spanning the four seasons echoed in the title, their relationship grows and intensifies, until a savage act forces them to abandon the precarious life they’d established and take to the road.
Sara Baume was born in Lancashire and grew up in Co. Cork.

She won the 2014 Davy Byrnes Short Story Award and the 2015 Hennessy New Irish Writing Award. She now lives in Cork with her two dogs.
