Presentation Parlour

(1963)
A novel by

 
 
Five very individual aunts presided over Kate O'Brien's youth in Limerick. Her mother had died when she and her eight brothers and sisters were very young and the aunts took the children on and made from five to forty-five different sorts of impressions' on the surface of family life.
In these enchanting memories with their rare subtlety and precision we meet the five aunts in all their vigorous reality. Those who have enjoyed Kate O'Brien's many delightful novels will recognize the skill and charm with which she conjures up the flavour and atmosphere of her early years.
