Donada Peters brings to life Agnes Browne, working-class heroine of Brendan O'Carroll's hilarious and poignant novel of depressed Dublin. Whether following Agnes through her daily routines or shadowing her seven children on their comic adventures, Peters drops the listener right into the Irish ghetto, complete with a fitting accent that keeps the Irish slang rolling. Unlike many of the popular books depicting hard-scrabble working-class life on the Emerald Isle, O'Carroll's is funny, entertaining and warm, and Peters carries the tone one step further with her careful reading.
