Perhaps it is story that accounts for Frank's survival. Wearing rags for diapers, begging a pig's head for holiday dinner and gathering coal from the roadside to light a fire, Frank endures poverty, near-starvation and the casual cruelty of relatives and neighbors-yet lives to tell his tale with eloquence, exuberance and remarkable forgiveness. Angela's Ashes, imbued on every page with Frank McCourt's astounding humor and compasison, is a glorious book that bears all the marks of a classic. As Mary Breasted, author of Why Should You Doubt Me Now said: "Frank McCourt's book is deeply moving, for his searing story is ture." No one has ever written about poverty or childhood like this. That he could create out of such squalor and misery a flawless masterpiece is nothing short of miraculous.
