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.
