Amendments

the instant Irish bestseller about one family through the generations

«There’s so much casually imparted wisdom in Mulvey’s writing that reading her work feels as if you’ve been through therapy without realising it. The Amendments is a compelling, beautifully observed novel about the long reach of shame in the lives of Irish women across generations.»

«There’s so much casually imparted wisdom in Mulvey’s writing that reading her work feels as if you’ve been through therapy without realising it. The Amendments is a compelling, beautifully observed novel about the long reach of shame in the lives of Irish women across generations.»

Sarah Gilmartin

«An engaging debut novel.»

Irish Examiner

«A questing first novel of significant prowess . . . Mulvey touches on complex questions of belonging, freedom and motherhood

Observer

«Compelling . . . smart, perceptive . . . Mulvey has a sharp eye for details that point up larger truths . . . The Amendments is an opening salvo from a novelist of grit and power»

The Irish Times

«Elegant prose and an earnest engagement with emotional integrity are the hallmarks of this engrossing coming-of-age tale . . . The novel brims with drama and dilemmas as Nell and her mother together tackle the thorny issues of faith, freedom and feminism in a cloistered society.»

Mail on Sunday

«Rarely has a book moved me as The Amendments has: it cuts to the heart of what it means to be human, to want, to love, to be a mother or a daughter or a woman moving through the world. It's a triumph of a book, and a vital one too»

Elizabeth Macneal, <i>Sunday Times</i> bestselling author of <i>The Doll Factory</i>

«Niamh Mulvey's wonderfully compelling characters and deft, clear prose offer great pleasure. Her sense of political and cultural change is sharp, and the beauty she finds in days of struggle is haunting.»

Joseph O'Connor, author of <i>My Father's House </i>and <i>Star of the Sea</i>

«A smart, subtle, engrossing and moving novel that gives voice to so much that's unspoken about Ireland and about youth.»

Emma Donoghue, Booker prize-shortlisted author of <i>Room</i>

«An extraordinary achievement. The Amendments is about a lot of things - love, family, girlhood, growing up, sex, legacy, compassion - all blended into a moving plot, expertly handled. Wonderful.»

Jessie Burton, bestselling author of <i>The Miniaturist</i>

«I loved The Amendments. Rare is the novel that is as significant as it is enjoyable: her characters glimmer with heart and soul, her writing is beautiful and her themes profound. It's a book about mothers and daughters, friendship, hope, bravery and what it means to believe in something. A fantastic and important achievement.'»

Emma Stonex, author of<i> The Lamplighters</i>

«I genuinely loved The Amendments. I found it such a tender, compassionate, deeply believable novel. I'd defy any Irish woman, in particular, to read this and not feel that sense of innate recognition that all the best writing elicits.»

Niamh Hargan, author of <i>Twelve Days in May</i>

«In her debut novel, Mulvey explores Ireland’s history of control over women and their fertility through the story of Nell and her partner Adrienne»

Irish Journal

«Online heat has been rising slowly but suely around Niamh Mulvey's intriguing debut novel, The Amendments . . . Abortion, the Church, teenage pregnancy, the Celtic Tiger - Mulvey has covered plenty of ground.»

Irish Independent

«Delving into the lives of three generations of women, we see how Ireland has changed over the course of one family . . . While Nell and Dolores feel like they’re miles apart, their stories are more similar than they expected.»

VIP

«Niamh Mulvey has written a deft and deeply moving fiction about cross-generational secrets and longings, because such is the stuff of our everyday, dramatic, secretive lives. This is a work of beauty and insight.»

Ed O'Loughlin
