The Irish make up a huge part of our culture and our history, and very few people know anything about life in Ireland in the tough times.  McCourt gives us an eloquently written, fine example of storytelling as he relates to us what it meant to grow up poor and Irish.  I think thousands of Americans can relate based on their own experiences or their own family history.
