Details

This is a story of the fight against poverty. The McCourt family moved back from America where they had gone to make a life and returned to Limerick city at a time when Ireland had little to offer them. When disease, hunger and malnutrition takes his brothers and sisters from him, young Frankie and his brother Malachy grow up little realising that life has more to offer than old potatoes and boiled pigs head for Christmas dinner. The upstairs room was ‘Italy’, warm and dry. Downstairs was Ireland, wet and cold. The rats, the death, the shared latrine and the smell of poverty and neglect pervade every paragraph of this powerful book.

Softcover, 364pgs. Very good, mark on cover. 195mm x 260mm
