Born in 1941, Eileen Tumulty is raised by her Irish immigrant parents in Woodside, Queens, in an apartment where the mood swings between heartbreak and hilarity, depending on whether guests are over and how much alcohol has been consumed. When Eileen meets Ed Leary, a scientist whose bearing is nothing like those of the men she grew up with, she thinks she’s found the perfect partner to deliver her to the cosmopolitan world she longs to inhabit.

The narrator's voice was okay, however the gaps between the end of a chapter and the next were so long that I kept checking to see of I needed to recharge my device. Because the narrator spoke so slowly, the story coud cure insomnia.
