Product description

Review

Quite brilliant; beautifully, cleverly observed; funny, heart-breaking. -- Roddy Doyle

Brilliantly written and absolutely hilarious. Hilary is an extraordinary writer and Hopscotch is destined to become a classic of the form. -- Donal Ryan

The best book I read last year. A heartbreaking story masterfully written. -- Paul Howard

Hilary Fannin carries the reader deep into the mind of a little girl baffled by the world around in her candid, intoxicating memoir . . . a lucid, crystalline and intoxicating style. Hopscotch tells a private story with candour and exactitude, love and understanding, artfulness and wit. -- Carlo Gebler ― Irish Times

Hopscotch captures the joys, fears and bewilderments of a 1960s Dublin childhood through the wonderful prism of an innocent young girl’s puzzled attempts to navigate the muddy waters of her parents’ world. It is written with a deft sleight of hand that makes it wonderfully funny and moving. -- Dermot Bolger ― Sunday Independent

Book Description

Poignant, funny memoir of an unconventional family in suburban Dublin, written by Irish Times columnist.
