SNIPPETS FROM THE PAPERS:
One Wild Life is a lush, colourful tome. Part photo-journal, part-travelogue, it documents Mulvany’s travels across the globe and her conversations along the way with these people working for social change. The body of the book is a collection of interviews with them. Interviews are in turn punctuated by diary extracts and photographs which lend a wonderful immediacy and excitement to the whole adventure. Mulvany is an interesting character. From Rathfarnham, Dublin, the 30-year-old holds a master’s in international education from Oxford. Articulate and softly spoken, she gives off a sense of understated self-assurance, possibly born of years of travelling and self-reliance.
‘One Wild Life documents the reality of a dream…A must have for anyone dabbling anew in the waters of social change’.
Where do you think your wanderlust stems from?
I’ve always been curious about other people and places, about what makes people tick and cultures thrive. I love the sense of adventure and independence that travel can bring. I particularly love when I can stay in other people’s homes and it really helps to increase my understanding of the country and culture, and hopefully make some new friends along the way.
