TATTY

Christine Dwyer Hickey

Hailed by the critics as a masterpiece,Tattyis a devastating, yet hilarious, depiction of a troubled Dublin family told through the lively, charismatic voice of a little girl.

With brutal honesty, Tatty tells the story of her life with her beloved, feckless Dad, her tormented Mam, her five siblings and the booze that brings them down. This not just an entertaining tale, but also a heartbreaking account of a disturbed childhood that makes for compulsive reading.
