Sarah | 1 comments I’m looking for a book I was assigned for a Masters level Sociology Class dealing with Humanism in ‘76. It was a coming of age story about an Irish Immigrant boy... perhaps in New York... father was a waiter who lost his job... for some reason Studs Lonigan keeps coming up.. but I remember the father was a waiter...I’d love to read it again! Thank you!

SamSpayedPI | 1874 comments A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is about an Irish immigrant family in the early 1900s. It focuses on the girl, Francie, but she does have a brother (Neeley), and their father is a singing waiter who does lose his job.
