Tom McCarthy’s memoir, SUSIE’S SON – a memoir in verse and prose, will provide interesting reading for Limerick people this Christmas.
Tom is a poet and storyteller and many of his adventures are enhanced by his poems which flow naturally with the narrative. Beginning with his early days in Ballynanty, the reader is invited to join Tom as he observes his younger self on life’s journey. Some events which are pivotal to the story include schooldays, learning to be a boxer, journeys to work in England, falling in love and starting his business. There are tough times as well as happy ones with much hard work to be done but throughout the adventure, Susie, Tom’s Mum, is there in a leading role.
