              "I'll be grand, girl, I've great faith." - Mammy, just before she died Funny, charismatic and generous; angry, vicious and hurt; in pub lounges all over Cork City, Noelle McCarthy's mother Carol rages against her life and everything she's lost. As soon as she can, Noelle runs awa...y. All the way to New Zealand, to make a new, different kind of life. But then Mammy gets sick, and it's time to face everything that's waiting back home. From Catholic Ireland in the '70s, '80s and '90s to sparkling Auckland in the first years of the new millennium, Grand is a story of the invisible ties that bind us, of bitter legacies handed down through the generations, and of the leap of faith it takes to change them. "Derry Girls meets An Angel at My Table is an improbable combination. Yet here it is, and it is perfect. Desperately funny, hysterically sad, so beautiful and so humane. All of life is in it. I utterly adored it. - MEG MASON, AUTHOR OF SORROW AND BLISS "In this stunning reckoning with demons, McCarthy's mammy, Carol, lands on the page with a hilarious, indelible, appalling vivacity, stealing every scene. The trajectory of their relationship - intense, literally tooth and claw, barely survivable - takes them, in the nick of time, to something fierce and unbreakable. Grand will have you reassessing the power of love; the deep and painful channels it can cut." - DIANA WICHTEL, AUTHOR OF DRIVING TO TREBLINKA "A howl of anguish and love." - STEVE BRAUNIAS "Noelle McCarthy writes with wit, honesty and grace of that once-in-a-lifetime reality check for daughters - the dying of the mother." - REN E
