Description

The book recounts Mr. McCourt's childhood in Brooklyn, New York, and in Limerick, Ireland, where his family returned after giving up hope for success in the United States. His father was an alcoholic who at times spent the majority of his paycheck on alcohol, leaving his family hungry. Mr. McCourt writes about this as well as seeing three siblings die prematurely because of starvation or disease. The author also talked about the gift of storytelling that his father gave him which has resulted in a career spent writing, along with his brother and fellow author, Malachy McCourt. This is Mr. McCourt's first book. Pictures of his family and a video clip were also shown.
