So this has been on my TBR list for the longest time.i would bet close to 20 years? I am proud to say I finished it today. It was wonderful. His writing was divine. I literally smelled the smells, felt the hunger, witnessed the poverty and loss and found myself smiling at the shenanigans. The story of a poor Irish family growing up in the lanes of Limerick pre and post Ww2. A story of poverty and hope. Now to find his 2 follow ups❤❤❤❤❤

marleed I read a book written by his brother many moons ago, as well. It was interesting because it‘s a slightly different perspective. Malachy- I think is his brother. 2d
BirdsandBelles Loved this book! I read it years ago and it still stays with me. 💕 2d

Antique fair find. Always wanted a copy of this book because I love the brush drawings by Louis le broquey. The font is georgous too.

I knew this book was used when I bought it, but this takes “Used” to a whole nother level! (I‘m holding onto my American Midwestern roots by saying “nother”.)

Every page is like this.

@BookishMarginalia - this makes me think of you! I hope you‘re well. 😊

Tex2Flo All your choices for this challenge have folks jumping into the water... psychologically, what does this tell us? It's hot outside? Or you're looking to dive into something new? 1w

I'm so behind on updates here, but I have been reading all summer! Just finished Ulysess with this group and it was a fun ride. I'm genuinely happy to have read this one and don't know that I could have ever conquered it without a group to wrestle through everything with. @matthieumcintosh is the best!

Nebklvr Great job!! 1w

@Cinfhen @arlenefinnigan
Day 3 I had no idea what this phrase meant. I looked it up and one site said "something the Irish did when rebelling against England ", so that made me think of this book I read many years ago, a great great book.

Cinfhen This sounds interesting 🤓 2w

gradcat @Crazeedi I didn‘t know what it meant either (see my post—nothing to do with the correct meaning!). 🤣 2w
