Publisher's Summary

Frank McCourt's Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir, movingly read in his own voice, bears all the marks of a classic. Born in Depression-era Brooklyn to Irish immigrant parents, Frank was later raised in the slums of Limerick, Ireland. His mother, Angela, had no money to feed her children since Frank's father, Malachy, rarely worked, and when he did, he drank his wages. Angela's Ashes is the story of how Frank endured - wearing shoes repaired with tires, begging for a pig's head for Christmas dinner, and searching the pubs for his father - a tale he relates with eloquence, exuberance, and remarkable forgiveness.

Critic Reviews

"It's pure heaven when McCourt reads...[He] sighs, we weep. He speaks, we are transported." (The Christian Science Monitor)
"I'd listened to the audiobook which was read by Frank McCourt himself and vibrates with humor, heart, passion, and nostalgia..." (Roger Ebert)

The Voice

I really enjoyed it. The author reading it with his accent really puts in place and time. I will be watching the movie next.

Beautifully told story

So sorry I didn't read this book years ago. I cried and laughed. You could feel and see Frank's descriptions so vividly...
