Memories of a Catholic Girlhood

Front Cover
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1957 - Biography & Autobiography - 245 pages
0 Reviews
This unique autobiography begins with McCarthy’s recollections of an indulgent, idyllic childhood tragically altered by the death of her parents in the influenza epidemic of 1918. Tempering the need to fictionalize for the sake of a good story with the need for honesty, she creates interchapters that tell the reader what she has inferred or invented. Photographs.
