The Second Shift

Published by Self-Published

Clare Gallagher portrays the physical and emotional demands and labour of The Second Shift – a term given to the hidden and oftentimes unrecognised shift of housework and childcare, primarily carried out by women on top of their paid employment. This is a well contemplated project, with a cast of fatigue and frustration that is aptly translated into the book’s atmosphere. Also worth noting the excellent poem within by Leontia Flynn!
