A best-selling classic in a fresh new paperback edition A breakaway bestseller since its first printing, All Souls takes us deep into Michael Patrick MacDonald's Southie, the proudly insular neighborhood with the highest concentration of white poverty in America. Rocked by Whitey Bulger's crime schemes and busing riots, MacDonald's Southie is populated by sharply hewn characters like his Ma, a miniskirted, accordion-playing single mother who endures the deaths of four of her eleven children. Nearly suffocated by his grief and his community's code of silence, MacDonald tells his family story here with gritty but moving honesty. "All Souls is a memoir filled with desperation and despair, but there is also hope in it . . . [MacDonald's] discovery of his vocation in neighborhood activism is a refreshing change from most memoirs, which so often . . . are largely concerned with describing an ascent to celebrityhood." -Julian Moynahan, New York Review of Books "Michael Patrick MacDonald takes us on a heartbreaking tour of his South Boston family." -Frank McCourt, Irish America Magazine
