Book Description:
Agnes Browne returns for her final, heartwarming adventure in Brendan O'Carroll's acclaimed trilogy of working class Dublin life. The New York Times Book Review praised Brendan O'Carroll's first novel, The Mammy, as 'Cheerful . . . as unpretentious and satisfying as a home cooked meal . . . with a delicious dessert of an ending.' With the forthcoming second book in the trilogy, The Chisellers, and a movie about The Mammy (entitled Agnes Browne) on the horizon, the world is discovering O'Carroll's uniquely Irish blend of warmth and grittiness, comedy and pathos, as he elevates the lives of ordinary working class Dublin people and one extraordinary family into tales that are small in size but epic in emotion. With the final installment, The Granny, our comedic and lovable heroine, Agnes Browne, has a French lover, six children in their twenties including one in prison and a wee grandchild of her own. But the world is spinning fast for Agnes especially considering that her lover wants her to become 'a sexual animal' and that her family's far flung fortune is beyond her control. The members of the Browne family split up to make it in the world on their own until a tragedy brings the brood back together again and love keeps them that way forever. Praise for The Mammy'Reads like Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes on Prozac . . . jaunty, charming . . . It's refreshing to enter O'Carroll's fun loving, working class Dublin world.' Entertainment Weekly'How to lose weight: Read The Mammy. You will laugh your arse off and your tears will do away with your water retention problem. Uproariously funny . . . with a Dickensian twist to it.' Malachy McCourt, author of A Monk Swimming
