Description

Without a shred of mawkishness, the book manages to move seamlessly from funny to tragic' — Jenny Eclair 'Where do you start with the death of a beloved sibling? If you don’t know how to die, don’t worry; nature will tell you what to do on the spot, finely and adequately. When Annie does the unthinkable and dies, leaving Jo behind, the depth of her grief shines a light on the genuine and joyful relationship they shared.

Kathy Burke and Jerome Flynn were at Annie's house parties and the artist Bridget Riley was an employer who became a friend and mentor. At the age of 17 she moved to London and spent two years living in a squat and playing drums in a rockabilly band before making a name for herself on the stand-up circuit. I don't like starting the festival with a show I'm already fed up with, I want to look forward to doing it.

This is the story of his attempt to fit in, be accepted and fulfil his duties as a member of the community, despite being the only foreigner in the.Captivatingly told and filled with enchantment, it made me glad I had known Annie and glad that I know Jo' -- Robin Ince 'A beautiful, bold portrait of a much-loved sister that will speak to everyone who has loved and lost and everyone who is yet to lose someone. The cutting between their youthful history, exploring and finding their own paths into creative lives, with Annie’s later relationship with her cancer – and Jo’s relationship with that – keeps the vivacious Annie front and centre even as her body weakens. The sisters and their Catholic priest brother shielded their mother, still grieving the recent loss of their father, from reality.

With the blessing of Annie's partner, Martin, Jo includes several pieces penned by her sister in the book, invariably droll, witty vignettes. Annie devoted much of her life to writing about other people, those she believed to be far more interesting than her, the product of a boring, Anglo-Irish, itinerant Forces upbringing who never settled anywhere for long when they were young.With the blessing of Annie’s partner, Martin, Jo includes several pieces penned by her sister in the book, invariably droll, witty vignettes. They didn't fit in at the Air Force bases they were raised on or the strict convent boarding school they were sent to.
