Funny, sad, touching - this memorable picture of a time and a place in Dublin is angry too, at the cruelty of authority to those at the bottom of the heap - 'back of the Hack'

Kathleen Clifford was reared in the Liberties of the 1950s and 60s and went on to raise a family. Always an avid reader with an interest in Dublin history, it occurred to her that she could write her own personal history of growing up in the heart of Dublin.

Life was often hard but it never lacked drama - from the men in the Iveagh Hostel who ranged from the sad, to the philosophical, to the downright mad; from Annie, a sometime prostitute who slept on concrete steps outside the family's flat; from Uncle Mick who loved cowboy films but when drunk thought he was Crazy Horse; from the author's fiery mother and quiet father, and their blazing rows over money spent in the pub.

Funny, sad, touching - this memorable picture of a time and a place in Dublin is angry too, at the cruelty of authority to those at the bottom of the heap - 'back of the Hack'
