angelas ashes




just finished reading the amazing autobiographical book Angelas Ashes. it is about a young boys extremely poverty-stricken upbringing in Ireland during the 30-50's. i am amazed at the strength of character Francis 'Frank' Mcourt had. He and his surviving brothers had an incredible ability to survive and I find thier stories so inspiring.
