The Clancys of Queens: A Memoir by Tara Clancy (Crown, 2016)

“The fierce voices of working class women are too often inaudible in our top-down social economy, but when Tara Clancy breaks through, she dazzles us with authenticity, hilarity, and insight.  The relentless honesty of her book will capture your heart.” —Andrew Solomon, author of Far from the Tree

“This memoir is blessed by a narrating voice of such vivid originality the reader cannot help but relish the life it details.” —Vivian Gornick, author of The Odd Woman and the City

“In The Clancys of Queens, indelible moments tumble upon moments even more memorable until they form a blissful cascade as she recounts a New York City childhood that teeters from hardscrabble to posh. I loved it.” —Jon Cryer, actor and author of So That Happened
