  • A very interesting session, stimulating and thought-provoking. Off Duty is a very relevant book for carers, patients, scholars, artists, medical professionals and general audience alike. Thank you, Nessa O’Mahony and Katie Donovan, for producing this interview and for sharing it with all of us. It is also a great resource for us, university lecturers, a great support for our courses on poetry and Medical Humanities. Thank you very much.

    • Thanks so much for the comment Luz Mar. We’d delighted you enjoyed the interview. Please spread the word about the Attic Sessions.
