My Father Left Me Ireland: An American Son’s Search For Home by Michael Brendan Dougherty
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 740 kb
Overview: A beautiful and heartbreakingly raw memoir of Irish identity and fatherhood.
The child of an Irish man and an Irish-American woman who split up before he was born, Michael Brendan Dougherty grew up with an acute sense of absence. He was raised in New Jersey by his hard-working single mother, who gave him a passion for Ireland, the land of her roots and the home of Michael’s father. She put him to bed using little phrases in the Irish language, sang traditional songs, and filled their home with a romantic vision of a homeland over the horizon.
