Book Summary:

“Darkly hilarious . . . Wildly entertaining.” —The Guardian Meet Majella O’Neill, a heroine like no other, in this captivating Irish debut that has been called Milkman meets Derry Girls Majella is happiest out of the spotlight, away from her neighbors’ stares and the gossips of the small town in Northern Ireland where she grew up just after the Troubles. She lives a quiet life caring for her alcoholic mother, working in the local chip shop, watching the regular customers come and go. She wears the same clothes each day (overalls, too small), has the same dinner each night (fish and chips, microwaved at home after her shift ends), and binge-watches old DVDs of the same show (Dallas, best show on TV) from the comfort of her bed. But underneath Majella’s seemingly ordinary life are the facts that she doesn’t know where her father is and that every person in her town has been changed by the lingering divide between Protestants and Catholics. When Majella’s predictable existence is upended by the death of her granny, she comes to realize there may be more to life than the gossips of Aghybogey, the pub, and the chip shop. In fact, there just may be a whole big world outside her small town. Told in a highly original voice, with a captivating heroine readers will love and root for, Big Girl, Small Town will appeal to fans of Sally Rooney, Ottessa Moshfegh, and accessible literary fiction with an edge.

Book Summary:

Root Beer Floats is a true story about growing up in small-town America during the 1950's. It captures the essence of the author's relationship to the beloved town of his youth during one of America's most exciting decades. From the day his father comes home after WWII, to the day he leaves the town in search of his future, he shares with us a colorful collection of his childhood memories. Brought up in a family that counted every penny, life was simple and sweet. We learn that at a young age, his love of root beer floats not only satisfies his overactive sweet tooth, but also leads him into a battle with temptation, a battle he loses all too easily. A few years later, he finds two warm beers on a hot summer night every bit as tempting. From the fine art of car-hopping on a snowy winter's day, to having his eye nearly "put out" in a walnut fight, his story portrays a childhood filled with delight and optimism, a dose of which should brighten the hearts of all who partake.
