About this show

The Irish . . . and How They Got That Way is an irreverent but affectionate history of the Irish in America that mingles laughter and sentiment in a tapestry of classical songs and stories as told by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Frank McCourt. The Irish. . . encapsulates the most tumultuous times of the past century with the vibrant humor and bitter irony that has become the trademark of the author of the acclaimed biography Angela's Ashes.
