Dublin One City One Book is a Dublin City Council initiative, run by Dublin City Libraries, which encourages people to read a book connected with the capital city.

This year's book is Tatty by Christine Dwyer Hickey, published by New Island Books - actor Seána Kerslake reads the first chapter above.

Originally published in 2004, Tatty is a devastating yet hilarious depiction of a troubled Dublin family told in the vibrant, charismatic voice of the little girl lost within. 

While the nation's libraries remain closed due to the Covid-19 crisis, the book is currently available to borrow from Dublin City Libraries through the Borrowbox app, or to buy directly from New Island Books and the numerous bookshops still selling online.
