Summary
The first volume in the 20th century saga of the O'Malley family of Chicago. It begins with the story of Charles Cronin O'Malley's coming of age, graduation from high school in 1946, and service with the Army in a still much-traumatized Germany. He finds hunger everywhere, the black market booming, government agents hunting down refugees for the ruthless Russians, and streets filled with human suffering. All he wants is to go to Notre Dame and have a nice, orderly life, but the Deity seems to have other plans for him
