When Frank Gannon was growing up he knew his parents were from Ireland. It was odd though that they never talked about it and would rarely give anything but a curt answer to his questions about their lives before coming to America. It's not surprising that after his parents died he decided to go to Ireland and see if he could uncover some family roots.

Midlife Irish: Discovering My Family and Myself is about the trip to Ireland but also about being Irish in America. Gannon is irreverent and funny but he writes with heart too. An Irish heart it turns out.

"Growing up, I knew that I was Irish in much the same way I knew I had asthma. I knew I had it but I didn't know anything about it.".

Loved this book, as someone who longs to travel to Ireland and research my own family, I found this book to be a light hearted look at a journey i may hopefully someday take myself. =)
