After living in Ireland as a child, I was always confused when people talked about Irish poverty in recent history as the country I knew was so vibrant. This book really opened my eyes to a world of poverty I had never really considered. Not a book for the faint of heart, but in my opinion McCourt offers the perfect balance of honest, depressing content with Irish story telling and humor. A terrific read.
