Linnea Lannon"Detroit Free Press"
Every once in a while, a lucky reader comes across a book that makes an indelible impression, a book you immediately want to share with everyone around you....Frank McCourt's life, and his searing telling of it, reveal all we need to know about being human.

"People"A splendid memoir, both funny and forgiving.

Michiko Kakutani"The New York Times"
A classic modern memoir...stunning.

Mary KarrFrank McCourt's lyrical Irish voice will draw comparisons to Joyce. It's that seductive, that hilarious.

Peter Finn"The Philadelphia Inquirer"
A spellbinding memoir of childhood that swerves flawlessly between aching sadness and desperate humor...a work of lasting beauty.

Margaria Fichtner"The Miami Herald"
...a monument to the self-perpetuating power of the human accomplished, authoritative, and shimmering example of the memoirist's art.

Nina King"The Washington Post Book World"
This memoir is an instant classic of the genre...good enough to be the capstone of a distinguished writing career; let's hope it's only the beginning of Frank McCourt's.

Pete Hamill"Irish American Magazine"
Frank McCourt has examined his ferocious childhood, walked around it, relived it, and with skill and care and generosity of heart, has transformed it into a triumphant work of art. This book will be read when all of us are gone.

Vanessa V. Friedman"Entertainment Weekly"
The power of this memoir is that it makes you believe the claim: that despite the rags and hunger and pain, love and strength do come out of misery -- as well as a page-turner of a book. And though the experience it tells of was individual, the point -- and the story -- is universal.

Thomas Cahill"Angela's Ashes" is a chronicle of grown-ups at the mercy of life and children at the mercy of grown-ups, and it is such a marriage of pathos and humor that you never know whether to weep or roar -- and find yourself doing both at once. Fear not: it ends happily; but all along, through each fresh horror of the narrative, you win be made happy by some of the most truly marvelous writing you will ever encounter. McCourt deserves whatever glittering prizes are lying around. Give the man a Prix de Rome, a Croix de Guerre, a Pulitzer, a Nobel, a Templeton -- and while you're at it pull him another Guinness!

Malcom Jones, Jr. "Newsweek" It is only the best storyteller who can so beguile his readers that he leaves them wanting more when he's done. With "Angela's Ashes, " McCourt proves himself one of the very best.
Michiko Kakutani "The New York Times" The reader of this stunning memoir can only hope that Mr. McCourt will set down the story of his subsequent adventures in America in another book. "Angela's Ashes" is so good it deserves a sequel.
Margaria Fichtner"The Miami Herald"...a monument to the self-perpetuating power of the human accomplished, authoritative, and shimmering example of the memoirist's art.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

"When I look back on my childhood I wonder how I managed to survive at all. It was, of course, a miserable childhood: the happy childhood is hardly worth your while. Worse than the ordinary miserable childhood is the miserable Irish childhood, and worse yet is the miserable Irish Catholic childhood". So begins the luminous memoir of Frank McCourt, born in Depression-era Brooklyn to recent Irish immigrants and raised in the slums of Limerick, Ireland. Frank's mother, Angela, has no money to feed the children since Frank's father, Malachy, rarely works, and when he does he drinks his wages. Yet Malachy - exasperating, irresponsible and beguiling - does nurture in Frank an appetite for the one thing he can provide: a story. Frank lives for his father's tales of Cuchulain, who saved Ireland, and of the Angel on the Seventh Step, who brings his mother babies.
