Product description

Based on the popular Facebook page Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling, creators of the much-loved Aisling character, Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen, bring Aisling to life in their first novel about the quintessential country girl who is moving to the Big Smoke.

Aisling is 28, and she’s a complete … Aisling. She’s living at home in Ballygobbard (or Ballygobackwards, as some gas tickets call it) with her parents and commuting to her Good Job at PensionsPlus in Dublin.

Aisling goes out every Saturday night with her best friend Majella, who’s a bit of a hames (she’s lost two phones already this year – Aisling has never lost a phone). They love hoofing into the Coors Lights, if they’re Out, or the vodka and Diet Cokes, if they’re Out Out.

Twice a week, Ais spends the night at her boyfriend, GJ’s (Generic John). He’s from Down Home, and was kiss number 17 at her 21st.

But Aisling wants more. She wants the ring on her finger. She wants the hen with the willy straws. She wants out of her parents’ house, although she’d miss Mammy turning on the electric blanket like clockwork and Daddy taking her car ‘out for a spin’ and bringing it back full of petrol.

When a week in Tenerife with John doesn’t end with the expected engagement, Aisling calls time on their relationship, and soon she’s surprised herself and everyone else by agreeing to move into a three-bed in Portobello with stylish Sadhbh from HR and her friend, the mysterious Elaine.

Newly single and relocated to the big city, the Adventures of Aisling are only just beginning.
