Book Description So Mammy Said is a powerful chronicle of a young Irish Catholic boy's life in a small village in Southern Ireland detailing the trials he faces and the triumphs he enjoys along the way to adulthood. Each chapter gives deeper insights into young Pat, his parents, his thirteen brothers and sisters, and the members of his small community, including a cantankerous schoolteacher and a priest with a short fuse. Filled with Irish wit and mishaps, the adventures of Pat's colorful childhood rivalthose of Huckleberry Finn. Walk with Pat as he journeys through the rites of passage that made him the man he is today. In the midst of abject poverty, hunger, illness, filth, and deprivation, Pat magically finds humor, dignity and love. What makes thisbook so rich is the raw honesty of Pat's thoughts and feelings and the way he tells the story without a shred of self-pity. Written in a fresh, conversational voice, this true story will surprise and shock you. It will make you laugh...
