How it’s New York: The authors all live in the New York area
How it’s Irish: They are describing their Dublin childhoods
Screaming, mitching, cadging, lying and . . . getting away with it. Irish Childhood by them who survived it.
Four Dubliners present the recipe for a Classic Irish Childhood: one part poverty, one part sexual repression, one part evil teachers. Add a fistful of salt and serve with a side of black humor. Then emigrate.
Kevin Holohan, Honor Molloy, Maeve Price and Michelle Woods share selections by Maeve Brennan, Maura Laverty, Patrick McCabe, Frank O’Connor and James Joyce.Click here for reuse options!
