Stunning reissue of the phenomenal worldwide bestseller: Frank McCourt's sad, funny, bittersweet memoir of growing up in New
York in the 30s and in Ireland in the 40s.It is a story of extreme hardship and suffering, in Brooklyn tenements and Limerick
slums - too many children, too little money, his mother Angela barely coping as his father Malachy's drinking bouts constantly
brings the family to the brink of disaster. It is a story of courage and survival against apparently overwhelming odds.Written
with the vitality and resonance of a work of fiction, and with a remarkable absence of sentimentality, `Angela's Ashes' is
imbued on every page with Frank McCourt's distinctive humour and compassion. Out of terrible circumstances, he has created
a glorious book in the tradition of Ireland's literary masters, which bears all the marks of a great classic.
