Go Home Paddy

GO HOME PADDY, a graphic novel, is the tale of one Irish immigrant’s aching struggle to find his way in a Bostonian society that fears and hates him while desperately attempting to hold on to his own humanity. Heartbreaking, thought-provoking and ultimately uplifting, this unique narrative incorporates historical details such as the Great Hunger, the rise of the Know-Nothings, Victorian prejudices and the Great Boston Fire of 1872. GO HOME PADDY is also timely as it examines the roles of immigration, race relations and religion in American society — hot political topics of today. Walsh is currently working on this book.
