M for Mammy
Eleanor O’Reilly

‘Fresh, thoughtful and original’
Irish Times

‘Strong and taut’
Anne Griffin


Meet the Augustts: Ma and Da, Jenny and Jacob, and their no-nonsense Granny Mae-Anne. Complicated as only families can be, they are bound together by their love for one another, and for a piping hot bag of chips. When misfortune strikes and Granny moves in, they learn to understand each other anew through new stories and old memories.

M for Mammy is an uplifting novel of family, love and the language we find when the words aren’t there.
