A remarkable companion volume to Angela's Ashes, Frank McCourt's Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir of his youth in 1930s and 40s Ireland, this book depicts the hardscrabble slums, public places, and people of Limerick in large, captioned black and white photos. These images are presented with firsthand accounts of daily life and the words of such great writers as W.B. Yeats and William Makepeace Thackeray, and capture a way of life that, though brutally hard, also had its moments of light.

McCourt's young brother Malachy provides the foreword, despite his initial misgivings: "But that was before I saw and read Through Irish Eyes."
