An autobiographical novel set in 1960s Ireland, this irresistible debut follows the rise and fall of the O'Feeney family, as seen through the eyes of a precocious little girl. More savage than civilized, Noleen is a rare character from a Dublin long forgotten, where Nelson's Pillar still stands in O'Connell Street?but not for long?and where untamed musicians gather in the O'Feeneys' kitchen to raise a jar and the roof. Noleen's father, a successful actor and scoundrel king of the city, does his best to destroy his family, while her mother tries to save it. Noleen schemes to make it through each Dublin day, cadging sweets and growing tough in the midst of chaos. Can a fierce girl's powerful imagination hold her family together, safe as geese in the sky, in their home on Tolka Row?

Vibrant and energetic writing.

Smarty Girl is one of those books where long after you have put it down the words, the unease, the triumphs and the sadness pop back into your mind, as if they had been part of your own past. Honor Molloy's book haunts in a special way. It makes you remember things from your own childhood, when you saw with naive eyes, and the first occasions when you became better, and unfortunately, aquainted with the adult world. You can share the shift from innocent to sage with the robust character of Noleen who is a testament to the resilience of children. But noleen had far more to deal with than most children, and you'll marvel how she made it through to the other side.
