Summary
This memoir tells the story of Malachy McCourt, who left a childhood of poverty in Limerick, Ireland, heading for the promise of America. Armed with savage humor and a gift for storytelling, he ran from memories of a drunken, vanished father and the humiliations of Angela, his mother. He carved out a place for himself in the saloons, on the stage, and on television. Eventually he found he had not left his memories as far behind as he had thought, and had to stop and turn and face his past
