There's Been A Little Incident by Alice Ryan

Synopsis

A witty and warm debut novel from a young Irish writer. A story of family, grief, and the ways we come together when all seems lost. Molly Black has disappeared. She's been flighty since her parents died, but this time - or so says her hastily written note - she's gone for good. That's why the whole Black clan - from Granny perched on the printer to Killian on Zoom from Sydney - is huddled together in the Dublin suburbs, arguing over what to do.

Former model Lady V presumes Molly's just off taking drugs and sleeping with strangers - which is fine by her. Cousin Anne, tired of living in Molly's shadow, is keeping quiet, and cousin Bobby is distracted by his own issues. But Molly's disappearance is eerily familiar to Uncle John. He is determined never to lose anyone again. Especially not his niece, who is more like her mum than she realises.

Reviews

'Warm, wry and genuinely funny. Alice Ryan has a great ability to describe the nuances of people.' Marian Keyes

'Here is a story that takes on grief in its many insidious guises, and yet this brave, big-hearted novel is full of warmth and wisdom. Clever, funny and an utterly life-enhancing read.' Christine Dwyer Hickey

'Told with great generosity and humour... Absorbing, uplifting and very hopeful.' Sinéad Crowley

'A refreshing, hugely entertaining novel with depth and ambition that had me compelled from the off. Alice Ryan is an author I will read forever more.' Anne Griffin
