Tatty

by Christine Dwyer Hickey
£8.99   paperback  Vintage (2006)

Tatty by Christine Dwyer Hickey Hailed by the critics as a masterpiece, Tatty is 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.

"Christine Dwyer Hickey's marvellous novel is a wonderful achievement. She gets the very sense, smell and taste of a child's world so authentically correct."
(Irish Examiner )
