In this new fiction by Man Booker Prize winner Anne Enright, a daughter delves into her past to uncover the truth behind her mother’s life as a famed actress of screen and stage. Wry, personal, darkly comedic at times, Actress simmers with insight and emotional power. Anne Enright’s performance of her own work is brilliant, not to be missed!

— Noelle


Katherine O'Dell is an Irish theater legend turned Hollywood film star. Every moment of her life is a performance, with her daughter, Norah, standing in the wings. With age, alcohol, and dimming stardom, however, Katherine's grip on reality grows fitful. Fueled by a proud and long-simmering rage, she commits a shocking crime. As Norah revisits her mother's life of fiercely kept secrets, she confronts in turn the secrets of her own sexual and emotional coming-of-age. With virtuosic storytelling and in prose at turns lyrical and knife-sharp, Anne Enright takes readers to the heart of the maddening yet tender love that binds a mother and daughter.
