Product description

Review

The story of a Dubliner reflecting with stunning honesty on his city and his past. With characters that leap off the page, it combines blunt realism with the everyday humour of Northside Dublin life. An incredible book that will soon rank as a best-seller. (An Taoiseach Bertie Ahern TD)

A rattling good yarn from Bill Cullen. It is a story of inner-city Dublin long since gone - which will provoke a heartfelt "Thank God" from those who experienced it. It is a story of happiness and sadness, of triumph and disappointment, and of inventiveness and ingenuity in a never-ending quest to earn a living to keep a large family in the basic necessities of life. (Gay Byrne)

Unashamedly feel-good . . . Cullen's story is an impressive one. (Publishing News)

A fascinating read, an absorbing and compelling human story. I felt I was part of the Cullen family as they struggled in the inner city slums of Dublin, yet one is left with an abiding sense of the human spirit's ability to survive and to triumph. As Molly Darcy said, "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, so make the most of today". This book is an inspiration. (Páidí Ó Sé.)

. . . the perfect antidote to ANGELA'S ASHES . . . He captures the spirit of the place with a sharp eye for detail and a quick ear for dialogue (Home & Country)

Refreshing, unsentimental, honest, optimistic and wise; and funny, too. This voice out of Ireland is the best one for years. (Libby Purves)

Uplifting (Dorset Evening Echo)

This is a racy portrait of Catholic community solidarity and a family that refused to be ground down by poverty. (Sunday Times) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

A very warm, funny, affectionate tale of growing up in Dublin in the 50s and 60s - a true-life rags to riches with all the appeal of a family saga. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
