Do you remember what it was like, really like, to be a kid? If you cannot, then Celtic artist Michael Carroll's first novel is the one for you. These fifteen stories collectively portray a life in transition from childhood to adolescence. But don't expect another of those warmhearted memory trips. MEEHALL is a powerful memoir of love and family, but it's also a helluva lot of fun. And educational as well. For example, do you know...How to safely capture a fleeing rodent? Or to catch a snake or tadpole? What kind of salad bowl makes the best merry-go-round? Have you ever heard of Mule-Skinners? Or a henway? Do you know the best way to wheedle your Mom into buying you a dog, or how to skillfully evade going to church...without getting caught? If your curiosity has been aroused, then read Michael Carroll's MEEHALL: Memories of A South Side Lad, and be enlightened, entertained, and touched. This one's for all of us.
