Before I get too deep into my review let me just say this Angela s Ashes is one of the most depressing books I have ever read That said it is also fascinating heartbreaking searingly honest narration told in the face of extreme poverty and alcoholism This absolutely entrancing memoir follows an Irish American Irish American on this later boy who comes of age during the Depression and the War years in a country gripped in the stranglehold of the Catholic Church tradition rampant poverty and unemployment and the seemingly ubiuitous curse of the Irish alcoholYoung Frank McCourt is born in American barely five months after his parents were wed Naturally he will ask later about the math His father suanders the family s wages at the pubs and soon the family with new children seeming to drop on a regular basis moves back to Ireland Frank and his family move from slum to slum as his father drifts aimlessly from one job to the next and from one pub to the next coming home at midnight to rouse his boys from bed making them promise to die for Ireland Everywhere for Frank is misery at school at home in the weather in the dreary conditions of Limerick and in a fiercly pious populace Forced to be a man long before most kids even have a paper route Frank is soon working to supplement whatever his mother can get handed from the government or begging while his father is off working and drinking in England s wartime industries Frank dreams only of returning to America where everyone is a movie star This novel is so incredibly heartbreaking not only because it is true but because it highlights the devastating conditions faced by millions and which sadly continue The work is a stinging indictment of alcoholism without being a polemic merely a recollection of what was everday life of the narrator s family courtesy of his father s drinking McCourt s supreme strength is in narrating the book through the eyes of his younger self rather than as an adult commentating or proselytizing about what he saw and did as a young man The young Frank makes choices out of survival instincts and simply because they seemed right at the time ie stealing to eat while promising himself to pay it all back later On top of the normal perils of adolescence sexual awakening and social awkardness Frank and countless young people like him needed to grow up far too early to stave of homelessness for himself and his family in the absence of his drifter drinking father And ultimately it is also the uintessential immigrant story of saving up enough to leave the Old Country behind in pursuit of a better life in America Approach Angela s Ashes with both caution and an open mind Bring tissues and try not to condemn Be like young Frank Observe without damning

But the worst offender of the last twenty years has to be the uniuely meretricious drivel that constitutes Angela s Ashes Dishonest at every level slimeball McCourt managed to parlay his mawkish maunderings to commercial success presumably because the particular assortment of rainsodden cliches hawked in the book not only dovetails beautifully with the stereotypes lodged in the brain of every American of Irish descent but also panders to the lummoxes collective need to feel superior because they have managed to transcend their primitive bog soaked origins escaping the grinding poverty imagined in the book to achieve what Spiritual fulfilment in the split level comfort of a Long Island ranch home And Frankie the pimp misses not a beat tailoring his mendacity to warp the portrayal of reality in just the way his audience likes No native Irish reader myself included has anything but the deepest contempt for this particular exercise in literary prostitution and the cynical weasel responsible for it my apologies to the fine people of Long Island for the unnecessary vehemence of the implied slur in the above review clearly it is not meant to be all encompassing
