Angela's Ashes ePUB –

Angela's Ashes Imbued with Frank McCourt s astounding humor and compassion, Angela s Ashes is a glorious Pulitzer Prize winner that bears all the marks of a classic 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 does nurture in Frank an appetite for the one thing he can provide a story Perhaps it is a story that accounts for Frank s survival Wearing shoes repaired with tires, begging a pig s head for Christmas dinner, and searching the pubs for his father, Frank endures poverty, near starvation, and the casual cruelty of relatives and neighborsyet lives to tell his tale with eloquence, exuberance and remarkable forgiveness
