Hailed by the critics as a masterpiece, Tatty is a devastating, yet hilarious, depiction of a troubled Dublin family, told through the lively, charismatic voice of a little girl over a 10-year period.

During this time we see the destruction brought about by alcoholism as one little girl tries to come to terms with her parents' drinking. This is the story of a disturbed childhood, yet it is also filled with humour and love. Chapter by chapter, the child's voice matures and her perception becomes more honed; we are left with a stunning portrait of a disintegrating family and the child lost within it.
