A Song for Mary: An Irish-American Memory by Dennis Smith

Growing up on the rough-and-tumble streets of New York City in the 1940s and 50s, Dennis Smith was a tenement kid, dirt-poor, Irish-Catholic, and missing a father. According to his mother, who fought desperately to keep her children on the right track, his father had a disability which required him to stay in a hospital and have no visitors. By his early teens, Smith had become an angry rebel, and was involved with drugs, alcohol, and various kinds of criminal mischief. Just as his life was about to spin out of control, he learned the truth behind his fathers absence, and began a difficult process of personal healing and spiritual renewal. Told in a first-person narrative, this lyrical remembrance is a powerful odyssey of one young man coming of age in a confusing and sometimes hostile world.
