This powerful memoir of life in South Boston--"the best place in the world"--captures the stigma of racism and the reality of poverty and violence. MacDonald's story is tragic, yet inspiring: Having lost four brothers to Southie's culture, he turned his pain into determination, founding gun buy-back programs and community groups for residents. Reader William Dufris's performance is straightforward, unsentimental, and perfectly captured in a South Boston accent. ALL SOULS is a haunting book--the drama of the 1974 anti-busing riots and the innocence of a boy's pride in his housing project home set the stage for a life filled with contrasts: love and hate, hope and despair.
