Book review: The Rachel Incident ploughs the horrid awkwardness of adolescence for belly laughs

Cork-born Caroline O’Donoghue’s third novel for adults is genuinely warmhearted and is the kind of laugh-out-loud funny you normally only find in stand-up comedy

In her third novel Caroline O’Donoghue, veteran columnist and podcaster, playfully tackles issues like pregnancy, fidelity, coming of age and taking responsibility for your actions. Picture: Akira Suemori
