Funny, sad and harsh, with the bitter ring of truth, this extraordinary memoir of Dublin in the 1940s and 1950s recreates a forgotten community. Angeline Kearns Blain looks back with love and grief at the hardships of her youth, celebrating the warmth and kindness of the neighbours and family who helped each other to survive, stealing sunlight where they could.
