    DescriptionThe Mrs. Browne trilogy became an instant bestselling success in author Brendan O'Carroll's native Ireland. Similarly, when Plume introduced The Mammy (the first book in the series, May 1999) in the United States, it was greeted with overwhelming enthusiasm from American readers. Fans of Agnes Browne craving further hilarious and heartwarming adventures will be delighted with The Chisellers. Agnes, the lovable and determined heroine, returns with her seven children--whom she affectionately calls "the chisellers"--all struggling to make their way in the world with varying degrees of success. To make matters more difficult, as Agnes struggles along the bumpy road of parenting, she learns that the family is about to be forced out of their tenement home in the name of urban renewal. Pierre, Agnes' persistent suitor, is thankfully on hand to console her. Like all good Irish stories, The Chisellers includes a wedding and a funeral, much laughter and some tears--and it is sure to please newcomers as well as loyal fans of this terrific series.

    Review quote
    "A BRILLIANT BOOK".-- Sunday Independent (London)
    Back cover copy
    Mother. Father. Business consultant. Cop. To her seven high-spirited "chisellers", Agnes Browne is all of these, and more. In the Dublin working-class neighborhood known as The Jarro, it's the Browne clan against the world -- and against the backstreet villains and white-collar emissaries of market forces that threaten to tear this upwardly aspiring family apart.The Browne brood is about to be relocated to the wilds of suburban Finglas when their tenement is demolished as part of an "Inner City Renewal Plan". With the help of her ambitious eldest boy and her persistent French suitor, Agnes copes with the ups and downs of "rural" life, one unscrupulous gangster, and the son who is well on his way to breaking his mother's heart.In the second novel of his bestselling Mrs. Browne trilogy, Brendan O'Carroll vividly captures the colorful, bittersweet world of Irish family life. The Chisellers brims with raw humor and moving drama, as one family soldiers on through an unforgettable seasons of success, disappointment, tragedy, and triumph.
