Angela's Ashes: AND 'Tis: A Memoir of a Childhood


A very special gift: the hardbacks of both Angela's Ashes and 'Tis, superbly and attractively republished for this special gift edition. '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.' MICHIKO KAKUTANI, New York Times Angela's Ashes was a publishing phenomenon. Frank McCourt's critically acclaimed, lyrical memoir of his impoverished Limerick childhood won the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics' Circle Award, the Royal Society of Literature Award and the Los Angeles Times Award amongst others, and rapidly became a word-of-mouth bestseller topping all charts worldwide for over two years. It left readers and critics alike eager to hear more about Frank McCourt's incredible, poignant life. 'Tis is the story of Frank's American journey from impoverished immigrant with rotten teeth, infected eyes and no formal education to brilliant raconteur and schoolteacher. Saved first by a straying priest, then by the Democratic party, then by the United States Army, then by New York University -- which admitted him on a trial basis though he had no high school diploma -- Frank had the same vulnerable but invincible spirit at nineteen that he had at eight and still has today. And 'Tis is a tale of survival as vivid, harrowing, and often hilarious as Angela's Ashes. Yet again, it is through the power of storytelling that Frank finds a life for himself. 'It is only the best storyteller who can so beguile his readers that he leaves them wanting more when he's done...McCourt proves himself one of the very best' (Newsweek). Here, both volumes are republished in a beautiful boxed edition, brimming with luxurious new touches, that all Frank McCourt's many, many fans will want to own. Hide synopsis
