I read another copy of this book in 1999. This is what I wrote about it after I read it...

"The author recalls his boyhood of poverty in New York and Ireland. Having
suffered through an alcoholic father, frequent moves, siblings' deaths, illness, and near-starvation, McCourt conveys the weariness that a family in such a desperate
situation often feels. He tells his family's story with love, humor, and a child's sense of wonder. Even though the narrative is sad, it doesn't evoke pity or tears. It's an uplifting story told with great warmth. What does come through, however, is a pervasive sense of McCourt's shame and the insensitivity of more fortunate people to those less fortunate."

ETA: The author of this book passed away in 2009 at the age of 78.

I'm releasing this book for...

***The 2022 Oh, The Places We Can Go Release Challenge hosted by awaywithfairies. The author's name contains the word FRANK. Frank is an urban community in the Rocky Mountains within the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass in southwest Alberta, Canada.

Happy reading and happy traveling (when it becomes safe to do so)!


Enjoy the book!
