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. The Arabic translation of Tatty was published by Sefsafa books in 2015. Tatty is also available in Polish, Estonian, Italian, Arabic, and available on audiobook read by acclaimed actor Cathy Belton.
Tatty is the story of a Dublin family as told through the eyes of one of its children over a ten year period.
