Biography & Autobiography. Nonfiction. HTML:A Pulitzer Prize??winning, #1 New York Times bestseller, Angela's Ashes is Frank McCourt's masterful memoir of his childhood in Ireland.
"When I look back on my childhood I wonder how I managed to survive at all. It was, of course, a miserable childhood: the happy childhood is hardly worth your while. Worse than the ordinary miserable childhood is the miserable Irish childhood, and worse yet is the miserable Irish Catholic childhood."

So begins the luminous memoir of Frank McCourt, born in Depression-era Brooklyn to recent Irish immigrants and raised in the slums of Limerick, Ireland. Frank's mother, Angela, has no money to feed the children since Frank's father, Malachy, rarely works, and when he does he drinks his wages. Yet Malachy??exasperating, irresponsible, and beguiling??does nurture in Frank an appetite for the one thing he can provide: a story. Frank lives for his father's tales of Cuchulain, who saved Ireland, and of the Angel on the Seventh Step, who brings his mother babies.

Perhaps it is story that accounts for Frank's survival. Wearing rags for diapers, begging a pig's head for Christmas dinner and gathering coal from the roadside to light a fire, Frank endures poverty, near-starvation and the casual cruelty of relatives and neighbors??yet lives to tell his tale with eloquence, exuberance, and remarkable forgiveness.

Angela's Ashes, imbued on every page with Frank McCourt's astounding humor and compassion, is a glorious book that bears all the marks o

Memoir of his childhood in Ireland
  bentstoker | Jan 26, 2024 |
Tough story. I made it about halfway through. Things just seemed to be getting worse and worse. ( )
  BookListener | Jan 18, 2024 |
Dit is echt een heel mooi verhaal. Nuchter beschreven, maar je voelt de emoties erachter. Glimlachend, en zo af en toe met tranen in de ogen, heb ik meegeleefd met het opgroeien van een arm, maar vastberaden jochie. Het einde vraagt om meer, want ik wil weten hoe het verder gaat met Frank. ( )
  weaver-of-dreams | Aug 1, 2023 |
Utterly fabulous. Sorry I took so long to get to it. Incredibly unique and absorbing writing style. Puts the reader right into the story. ( )
  Cantsaywhy | May 22, 2023 |
This story is a tale about Frank McCourt's childhood in Ireland. It's a story of survival because Frank endures poverty, cruel neighbors, and nearly starving. Frank's mother has no money to feed her children because Frank's father rarely works, and drinks away his money when he does work. Although irresponsible, Frank's father does provide Frank with a love of stories because of the tales he tells Frank. A heartbreaking story that readers can't look away from. Would recommend to high school readers. ( )

A spunky, bittersweet memoir.
adicionado por Shortride | editarTime, John Elson (Sep 23, 1996)
 
Frank McCourt waited more than four decades to tell the story of his childhood, and it's been well worth the wait. With ''Angela's Ashes,'' he has [written] a book that redeems the pain of his early years with wit and compassion and grace. He has written a book that stands with ''The Liars Club'' by Mary Karr and Andre Aciman's ''Out of Egypt'' as a classic modern memoir.
 
For the most part, [McCourt's] style is that of an Irish-American raconteur, honorably voluble and engaging. He is aware of his charm but doesn't disgracefully linger upon it. Induced by potent circumstances, he has told his story, and memorable it is.
 
This memoir is an instant classic of the genre -- all the more remarkable for being the 66-year-old McCourt's first book.
