This is the story of John McGahern's childhood; of his mother's death, his father's anger and bafflement, and his own discovery of literature.
"Long before Frank McCourt made an entire industry out of twinkly eyed accounts of the povery and institutionalised brutality of mid-twentieth century rural Ireland, John McGahern, Ireland's greatest living novelist, had alreadt shone wise and upsparing light on this same world... Memoir is the full, unadorned story of his childhood and adolescence in Leitrim... His finest book yet."
