Product description

Review

Praise forThe Mammy
"I think Brendan O'Carroll is Agnes Browne, and if he's not, he's done one hell of a job capturing the absolute essence of a widowed mother in working-class Dublin." Anjelica Huston

"How to lose weight: ReadThe Mammy. You will laugh your arse off and your tears will do away with your water-retention problem. It is an uproariously funny account of growing up in inner-city Dublin a laugh-out loud book with a Dickensian twist to it." Malachy McCourt, author ofA Monk Swimming

"Hilarious and irreverent. A must-read." Gabriel Byrne

Praise forThe Chisellers
A brilliant book. Sunday Independent(London)

By turns funny, wise and heartbreaking, this Irish Tales of the City is O'Carroll's second book in his Mrs. Browne trilogy; the first, The Mammy, received high praise after publication in the U.S. last year. Featuring eccentric characters who are charming, irreverent and believable, the story continues in 1973 with Agnes Browne at center stage This lively novel features a wedding, a funeral and an ending that will melt the hardest heart. Readers will eagerly await the third book in this series. Publishers Weekly
Praise forThe Granny
O'Carroll is a popular stand-up comic, and he writes with an easy sense of humor winning and likable. Kirkus Reviews

"These Dubliners are irresistibly charming... Tales of working-class Irish life now fill bookshelves, but there's space aplenty for O'Carroll's sturdy contribution. Publishers Weekly
Praise forThe Young Wan
"An almost surefire winner one of those books that demands to be read in one sitting." The Irish Voice" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
