Goodnight Sisters is the second volume of Nell McCafferty’s selected writings. This exciting book provides more of “the best of Nell”. Articles taken from her early journalistic career are set alongside later but equally provocative, funny, angry and often disturbing, contributions written since The Best of Nell was published. Nell McCafferty brings to all of her subjects a sense of immediacy, pathos and humour. In particular post-amendment Ireland comes under scrutiny and does not go unscathed by her pen. Goodnight Sisters is, as the bestselling book The Best of Nell was described, “more than the best in Irish journalism”, it is a unique account of modern Irish life.
