A writer and his book
- Frank McCourt ( 1930 - 2009 ) was born in New York. But in the 1930s, The American Dream didn't exist for many Americans. There was a severe economic crisis. Many people were unemployed: they had to move to find a job.
- So, in 1934, Frank's parents decided to go back to Ireland (where they were born). The family moved to Limerick, in the Republic of Ireland.
