THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
‘Heart-breaking, heart-warming, and hilarious: a glorious debut’ Ruth Hogan
‘Strong and taut’ Anne Griffin
‘Fresh, thoughtful and original – a charming debut’ Irish Times
‘I really enjoyed this, Eleanor is a lovely writer’ Sheila O’Flanagan
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. Sometimes, in a family as complicated as the Augustts, it’s not always what is spoken that makes the most sense.
M for Mammy is an uplifting story about the unique comfort of home, the language we can find when the words aren’t there, and the power of a family to heal itself.
‘A heartfelt debut about love, understanding and the complicated ties of family’ Prima

M is for Mammy. It’s also for Magnificent! What a wonderful story – in turns heart-breaking, heart-warming, and hilarious (which is not an easy combination to pull off). Also, Granny Mae-Anne is a FABULOUS creation . . . Eleanor, it’s a glorious debut.Ruth Hogan
