Description

‘I’ll be grand, girl, I’ve great faith.’ – Mammy, just before she dies

Funny, charismatic and generous; angry, vicious and hurt; in pubs all over Cork City, Noelle McCarthy’s mother Carol rages against her life and everything she’s lost.

As soon as she can, in the early years of the millennium, Noelle runs away. All the way to New Zealand. Yet, the demons of the past give chase and Noelle seems fated to throw away her future, just like her mother. Somehow she gets out of the hole and makes a new life. But then Carol gets sick, and finally it’s time to face the past and everything that’s waiting back home in Cork.

Grand is sharp, funny, tender and deeply moving – a dazzlingly honest memoir about becoming a modern woman.
