About the Author

Ann Marie Hourihane is one of the sharpest, funniest and wisest chroniclers of Irish life. She is the author of the acclaimed She Moves through the Boom. She lives in Dublin.


Ann Marie Hourihane is the most elegant and insightful chronicler of contemporary Ireland. In Sorry for Your Trouble she explores perhaps the most distinctive aspect of its culture with compassion, erudition, wit and a wonderful precision of feeling and expression. This is, paradoxically, an endlessly vivid reflection, not just on Irish life, but on life itself. Funny, brilliant and deeply moving, it is a lamp to hold up against the dying of the light -- Fintan O'Toole
A beautiful, insightful reflection on a very, very peculiar country's approach to the oddest experience of them all -- Ryan Tubridy
Hugely moving and illuminating. All of life, somehow, is here -- Tanya Sweeney * Irish Independent *
Powerful -- Patrick Freyne * Irish Times *
Moving, comforting and funny, everything a good Irish send-off should be * Business Post *
