The story of the legendary Irish actress Katherine O'Dell as told by her daughter. This novel is smart, sympathetic, and casts the kind of spell one imagines the mythical O'Dell would have cast had she been a real person.

— Ann

Description


Katherine O'Dell is an Irish theater legend turned Hollywood film star. Every moment of her life is a performance, with her daughter, Norah, standing in the wings. With age, alcohol, and dimming stardom, however, Katherine's grip on reality grows fitful. Fueled by a proud and long-simmering rage, she commits a shocking crime. As Norah revisits her mother's life of fiercely kept secrets, she confronts in turn the secrets of her own sexual and emotional coming-of-age. With virtuosic storytelling and in prose at turns lyrical and knife-sharp, Anne Enright takes readers to the heart of the maddening yet tender love that binds a mother and daughter.
