A Greyhound of a Girl
Four generations of women set off on a car journey. One is dead, one is dying – and one is a twelve-year-old girl preparing to say a last goodbye. Mary O’Hara’s beloved, joke-cracking grandmother is near the end of her life. Letting go is hard… until a mysterious young woman appears at Mary’s door. She is the ghost of Granny’s long-dead Mammy, on a mission to help her dying daughter take leave of the ones she loves. But first, she needs someone to drive them all to the old family farm for a visit to the past… From one of Ireland’s greatest writers, Booker Prize winner Roddy Doyle, this quirky ghost story is tender, funny and totally unique.
