About this product
- DescriptionVivian doesn't feel like she fits in-never has. She lives alone in a house in North Dublin that her great-aunt left her. She has friends, job and few social skills. She kws she is different. Before they died, her parents used to tell her she was a 'changeling' who belonged to ather world. Each day, she walks the streets of Dublin, looking for a way to get there, but she never finds one. After all, Dublin has a certain charm, but actual magic. Instead of a way out, will Vivian find a way to feel like she belongs here in this world? Rooted in Dublin's Northside, Eggshells is a whimsical, touching story about loneliness, friendship and hope. 'Delightfully quirky... Vivian's voice alone is eugh to keep us reading, charmed by her unique brand of manic, word-hoarding wit.'- Irish Independent. 'A wonderful debut, funny and touching, with skillful wordplay at work.'- Irish Examiner. 'Highly original, Lally has a unique voice as a writer.'- Sunday Independent. 'A fairy tale of contemporary Dublin. Edgy and eloquent, a remarkable debut.'- Declan Kiberd. 'The book's style calls to mind The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. Engaging and humorous. The perfect gift to send to expats of Dublin.' -Dublin Inquirer. 'Eggshells expresses a Joycean sense of the ordinary. A brilliantly realized first-person narrative... a memorable debut.'- Totally Dublin.
