About the Author

Annie Macmanus is an internationally renowned DJ and broadcaster. She was born in Dublin and attended Queen's University Belfast where she studied English Literature. She now lives in London. Mother Mother is her first book.


Prepare to fall in love with Mary, to want to reach right into the pages and hold her as a child and help her as an adult. MOTHER MOTHER is a brilliant book that takes you with it on a journey of struggle, friendship and forgiveness that explores the brutal legacy of addiction and the consequences of a deep grief left to stagnate -- Sara Cox, broadcaster and author of TILL THE COWS COME HOME
I loved it. Annie Macmanus is writer whose understanding and capturing of human nature comes as easily to her as breathing -- Candice Carty-Williams, author of QUEENIE
Macmanus' immersive novel reminds us that the minutiae of daily struggles are always worth homing in on. Her meditative, considered writing constantly pulls us towards the messy experience of life itself, where there is hope to be found in the grind of intergenerational trauma, and beauty amongst the brokenness. This is a work of gilded melancholy that is going to take everyone by surprise -- Una Mullally, journalist and broadcaster
A hugely entertaining and emotional story about intergenerational loss and love, trauma and acceptance. Macmanus writes with flair and confidence rarely seen in a debut -- Sinead Gleeson, author of CONSTELLATIONS
I adored it. I loved the characters and stories, and I became completely immersed in that world. It's so beautifully written... Moving and brilliant -- Emily Eavis, co-author of GLASTONBURY 50
A brave and occasionally heartbreaking portrait of a family falling apart and the woman who's been holding them all together for far too long. Macmanus' debut novel is assured, evocative and, like her characters, full of gentle strength -- Jan Carson, author of THE FIRE STARTERS
Superb... [Macmanus is] brilliant at voice and motivation and the (historic and emotional) passage of time; at making households so vivid you know their smell. Can't recommend enough -- Laura Snapes, journalist
I loved this book and felt powerfully connected to every character I met within its pages. Tender and deeply felt, it's a beautiful portrayal of the pain and beauty of normal life, told in hauntingly lyrical prose. Poignant and beautifully observed, it was a novel that stayed with me a long time, reminding me again and again of the secrets hidden within the most seemingly normal lives, and the awe-inspiring power and resilience of women everywhere -- Clover Stroud, author of MY WILD AND SLEEPLESS NIGHTS
