Mammy


One of the books inspired by the hit Channel 7 (BBC) TV series, Mrs Brown's Boys. Meet the young Agnes Brown, mother of the famous Mrs. Brown's Boys from the daily radio soap. Read about her joys and sorrows in this trilogy crammed with hilarious incidents, glorious characters, and a passion for life. "Mammy" is what Irish children call their mothers and The Mammy is Agnes Browne - a widow struggling to raise seven children in a North Dublin neighborhood in the 1960s. Popular Irish comedian Brendan O'Carroll chronicles the comic misadventures of this large and lively family with raw humourand great affection. Forced to be mother, father, and referee to her battling clan, the ever-resourceful Agnes Browne occasionally finds a spare moment to trade gossip and quips with her best pal Marion Monks (alias "The Kaiser") and even finds herself pursued by the amorous Frenchman who runs the local pizza parlor. These books feature pitch-perfect dialogue, lightning wit, and a host of colourful characters. Earthy and exuberant, these novels brilliantly capture the brash energy and cheerful irreverence of working class Irish life., in the great tradition of Roddy Doyle's Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha.
