Funny, tragic, and unsentimental, Christine Dwyer Hickey’s Tatty is a devastatingly affecting insight into the mind of a child.
With the crystal and sometimes brutal clarity of a child’s voice, Tatty tells the story of her alcoholic family, as she grows in age and awareness of the mutability and strangeness of her world. This is a portrait of a disintegrating family, and the child lost within it.
This extraordinary novel confirms Christine Dwyer Hickey’s status as one of the most potent voices in the canon of Irish literature.
