Meet Millie Gogarty

good eggsIn her debut novel, Boston College alumna Rebecca Hardiman introduces readers to the quirky but lovable Gogarty clan: Kevin, who is unemployed and overwhelmed, his sulky teenaged daughter Aideen, and his 83-year-old mother Millie, who has just been caught shoplifting—again. Good Eggs (Simon & Schuster/Atria Books, 2021) is a warmhearted and humorous look at three generations of a spirited Irish family. In an interview about Good Eggs, Hardiman, a former magazine editor, said, “I wanted to show that family isn’t always easy and personalities will clash, conflicts will arise, but in the end there’s a lot of love there as well.” According to Publishers Weekly, “Hardiman’s endearing novel stands out for its brilliant insight into the mixed blessings of family bonds.”
