Review quote

"I think Brendan O''Carroll is Agnes Browne, and if he''s not, he''s done one hell of a job capturing the absolute essence of a widowed mother in working-class Dublin." --Anjelica Huston "How to lose weight: Read The Mammy. You will laugh your arse off and your tears will do away with your water-retention problem. It is an uproariously funny account of growing up in inner-city Dublin--a laugh-out loud book with a Dickensian twist to it." --Malachy McCourt, author of A Monk Swimming "Hilarious and irreverent. A must-read." --Gabriel Byrne
