In this conversation with The Irish Times’ Kathy Sheridan, Rebecca Solnit explores her latest book, Recollections of My Non-Existence. A memoir set against the backdrop of a 1980s San Francisco rife with gender violence and trauma, Recollections of My Non-Existence paints a portrait of a young artist finding her voice through writing, relationships, and punk rock.

Her many honours include two NEA fellowships for literature, the Kirkus Prize for Nonfiction, and - for her book River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West - a Guggenheim, the National Book Critics Circle Award in Criticism, and Harvard’s Mark Lynton History Prize.
