Summary of 1st reading
The beginning of the book talks about how life as an Irish kid was tough. He had an alcoholic father and he didn't always get to have a meal in a day. It tells of how his father and mother got to New York, and it talks about his childhood. He has three brothers and a baby sister. His baby sister margret, dies right before I stopped reading. This is terrible for the family. The father had quit drinking because he loved her so much, and the mother had always wanted a little girl for herself. So once she died of being sick, the family collapsed. THe dad went back to drinking and the mother is going crazy.
