Sophie White is a writer and podcaster from Dublin. Her first four books, Recipes for a Nervous Breakdown (Gill 2016), Filter This (Hachette, 2019), Unfiltered (Hachette, 2020) and The Snag List (Hachette, 2022) have been bestsellers and award nominees, and have been described by Marian Keyes as ‘such fun – gas, clever stuff’ and Louise O’Neill as ‘laugh-out-loud funny, sharp as a tack and compulsively readable.’ Her fifth book, the bestselling memoir Corpsing (Tramp Press, 2021), was shortlisted for an Irish Book Award and the Michel Déon Prize for non-fiction. Her sixth book, Where I End (Tramp Press, 2022) is a literary horror crossover and lands this Halloween.
