This is the story of Irish theatre legend Katherine O'Dell, as told by her daughter Norah. It tells of early stardom in Hollywood, of highs and lows on the stages of Dublin and London's West End. Katherine's life is a grand performance, with young Norah watching from the wings.

But this romance between mother and daughter cannot survive Katherine's past, or the world's damage. As Norah uncovers her mother's secrets, she acquires a few of her own. Capturing the glamour of post-war America and the shabbiness of 1970s Dublin, Actress is a moving, disturbing novel about mothers and daughters and the corrosive nature of celebrity.
