A Monk Swimming, By Malachy McCourt

290 Pages

Very Good Condition

In 1952, traveling steerage, Malachy McCourt left a childhood of poverty  in Limerick, Ireland, heading for the promise of America.  This is the story of what he brought with him, and what he thought he'd left behind.

Armed with savage humour and a gift for storytelling, fueled by rage and the desire never to go hungry again, he ran from the memories of a drunken, vanished father and the humiliations of Angela, his mother.
