Angela's Ashes by Frank Mccourt
Angela's Ashes

Heather Whidden, January 1, 2013

Angela's Ashes is one of the most vivid memoir's I have read. It portrays the resilience of young children in severe poverty in the 1900's during World War. It is a daily slice of Irish life that portrays a variety of characters within a family; a story of despair, survival and hope.
The fact that Frank McCourt could recount his childhood with such detail shows tremendous character of heart and soul.
