Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt

Angela’s Ashes is Frank McCourt’s charming and uplifting memoir about 252577living in severe poverty in 1930s and 1940s Ireland. The kind of romantic poverty that involves no food, no proper clothing, fathers leaving, fleas everywhere, siblings dying, and getting a full time job at fourteen to support the family. All the sorts of things that prove that social programs are not needed.

Spoiler Alert: The main character, Frank McCourt, eventually writes a memoir.

I give this 4 out of 5 Guinness Pints.

Next week’s review, a book on the totally not tragic battle for Stalingrad!
