Within this stunning collection of memoirs are eight unique and intimate portraits of childhood and beyond. From Frank McCourt's critically acclaimed and best-selling story of a childhood spent in poverty in Ireland to Catherine Gildiner's prize-winning, rivetingly dark and very funny tale of a chaotic upbringing in 1950s small town America, this selection has been put together to offer the reader something a little bit different to read this summer. Evocative, poignant and beautifully written, each one is as good as any novel.
