            I knew dogs could make a difference to the children's lives. I knew it the moment I watched a little boy, exhausted by pain and sickness, stretch out his hand to touch my dog's paw, and then...he smiled.

            National treasure, writer, producer, actor and comedian, the beloved entertainer Brendan O'Carroll writes candidly about his life in his very first autobiography Before he became the nation's favourite Mammy, Brendan O'Carroll was known, simply as Brendan. He's the youngest of el...even children from a poor family in Dublin, he's a boy whose father died when he was just nine years old; he's someone whose hope and determination meant he never gave up. Throughout the tough moments, Brendan always had humour and a good story to tell alongside the ever-guiding inspiration of his own Mammy, a formidable figure who became Ireland's first female Labour MP, all whilst raising eleven children by herself. Just like the show so brilliantly expresses, Brendan's first autobiography, the real story behind the man who became Mrs Brown, combines uplifting heart, warmth and hilarity.

            A Still Life: A Memoir

            The miracle is, perhaps, that I am still here - that I continue - and that despite all that's come before, I believe my life to be good. That is the truth hidden under all of this: that I am deeply happy to be alive. Josie George lives in a tiny terraced house in the urban West M...idlands with her son. Since her early childhood, she has lived with a debilitating combination of illnesses and disability. Her days are watchful, restricted and often solitary, lived out in the same circumscribed hundred metres around her home. But Josie's world is vibrant, vivid, intricate, dynamic; her small universe teems with wonder, because she has learned what to look for. The patterns of ice on a frozen puddle; the small acts of kindness between her friends at the community centre; the birds in flight at sunset; the slow changes in the morning light, in her small garden, in her growing son. In January 2018, Josie sets out to tell the story of her still life, over the course of a year. As the seasons shift, and the tides of her illness draw in and out, Josie unfurls her history: her childhood bright with promise but shadowed by illness; her painful adolescence and her hopeful coming of age; the struggle of her marriage, and the triumph of motherhood. And then a most unexpected thing happens in Josie's quiet, ordered world: she falls in love. A Still Life is a story of illness and pain that rarely sees the light: illness and pain with no end or resolution; illness and pain that we must meet with courage, ingenuity, imagination and hope. Against a world which values progress and productivity above all else, Josie sets out a quietly radical alternative: to value and treasure life for life itself, with all its great and small miracles.

            One of the best books of this dreadful year. --Irish Independent When we first met, I was a child, and she had been dead for centuries. I am eleven, a dark-haired child given to staring out window ... Her voice makes it 1773, a fine day in May, and puts English soldiers crouching... in ambush; I add ditch-water to drench their knees. Their muskets point towards a young man who is falling from his saddle in slow, slow motion. A woman hurries in and kneels over him, her voice rising in an antique formula of breath and syllable the teacher calls a caoineadh, a keen to lament the dead. In the eighteenth century, on discovering her husband has been murdered, an Irish noblewoman drinks handfuls of his blood and composes an extraordinary lament that reaches across centuries to the young Doireann Ni Ghri ofa, whose fascination with it is later rekindled when she narrowly avoids fatal tragedy in her own life and becomes obsessed with learning everything she can about the poem Peter Levi has famously called the greatest poem written in either Ireland or Britain during its era. A kaleidoscopic blend of memoir, autofiction, and literary studies, A Ghost in the Throat moves fluidly between past and present, quest and elegy, poetry and the people who make it.
