Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt

It has been nearly 13 years since Frank McCourt publishes Angela’s Ashes. The sad, sweet memoir of his childhood in Ireland, marked by poverty, hunger, and the Catholic Church. His father, Malachy worked very little, and drank most of what he earned. McCourt spent his life listening to his father spin tales and fables, which made life endurable for the children. McCourt writes with a wry wit that makes his miserable childhood easier to read. While the reader feels heartbroken for the family, it is hard not to find the family endearing in their way. ⠀

If this book has not found its way into your hands in the last 13 years, I can not recommend highly enough that you pick it up now. It has certainly become a modern classic of prose.⠀
