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.

Tough tale of a boy growing up in Southie (during Whitey's reign). Written well enough. But I can't believe this guy isn't furious with his mother for the choices she made, with a complete disregard for her kids. I wonder if he'll write another book after his mother dies, with a little more affect.
