Synopsis

Synopsis

In a young, brash, hip new voice that combines irony and nervous tenderness with a bold and provocative appeal, Emer Martin introduces us to an Irish family unlike any other.

With her father institutionalized, and her brother's uncanny string of near-death misses, it's left to 28-year-old Keelin to find her oldest sister, Aisling, who has been missing from her family for fifteen years. Keelin travels to the bars of New York's East Village and the neon forest of Tokyo's underbelly, falling into and out of the lives of her colorful, troubled expatriate siblings. All the while, Aisling, out ahead, dares Keelin to find her and bring her back home.

Moving at high speed and wickedly funny, More Bread or I'll Appear takes us deep into a world where the boundaries between family members can be greater than the borders between countries.
