A Lucky Irish Lad
Mar 04, 2010
Recommended for: people who enjoy memoirs
What a charming book! Brings back fond memories for me as Kevin (Lucky/pinky/shirts) was born just ahead of me in the town of Ipswich where I was born. Kevin shares his experiences growing up in a large Catholic family that immigrates to the East coast in the US. Being Protestant I learned a lot about the Catholic religion as well as Irish culture. I even found myself frequently reading the book with an Irish accent in my mind! Kevin's early memoirs were filled with childhood innocence, spiritual growth, childhood pranks, and family traditions. I loved the fact that Kevin confessed his sins to the old, deaf priest when he was particularly misbehaving! He lost me a little when he described his life as a caddy as I am not a golfer but I still enjoyed it. Kevin's book made me smile and I thank him for sharing his wonderful childhood with me! Fitting that I should finish reading it on St. Patrick's day!
