Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis

A touchstone novel in Irish American literature, this reissue of the 1948 classic draws captivating portraits of love and strife amongst the unforgettable O’Connors. Brilliant and painful on themes of alienation, social class, and alcoholism, this candid account of mill town life in 1920s New England illuminates the often dear cost paid by poor immigrants to a nation that both needs and despises, lures and rejects, promises and abandons. "A brilliant first novel."—Commonweal

Marketing Plans:
