Frank McCourt's sad, funny, bittersweet memoir of growing up in New York in the 30s and in Ireland in the 40s - a story of extreme hardship and suffering, in Brooklyn tenements and Limerick slums - too many children, too little money, his mother Angela barely coping as his father's drinking bouts constantly brought the family to the brink of disaster. This story of courage and survival against apparently overwhelming odds is a glorious book in the tradition of Ireland's literary masters, which bears all the marks of a great classic.
