Michael Patrick MacDonalds memoir All Souls told the story of the loss of four of his siblings to the violence, poverty, and gangsterism of Irish South Boston. In his numerous speaking engagements ever since, MacDonald is frequently asked, "How did you get out?" Easter Rising is the searing answer to that question. Desperate to escape the "normal" route of violence and drugs that surrounds him, MacDonald finds his identity in the burgeoning punk rock movement. His forays into the Boston underground and New Yorks East Village pull him into the club scene vortex of Johnny Rotten, Mission of Burma, and the Clash. At nineteen MacDonald heads to Paris and then London. Running out of money, he contacts his Irish immigrant grandfather -- who once accused him of "worshipping the devil with the punk rocks." Grandpa offers a loan, but only if Michael promises to visit Ireland. It is this journey "home" that offers MacDonald a chance at reconciliation with his tumultuous past.

Michael Patrick MacDonald helped launch Boston's successful gun-buyback program and is founder of the South Boston Vigil Group. He has won the American Book Award, a New England Literary Lights Award, and the Myers Center Outstanding Book Award administered by the Myers Center for the Study of Bigotry and Human Rights in North America. His second book, the highly acclaimed memoir Easter Rising, was published in 2006, and will be available in paperback from Houghton Mifflin in March, 2008. He is currently writing the screenplay of All Souls for director Ron Shelton. MacDonald lives in Brooklyn.
