Year old with his pimply face sore eyes and bad teeth has little in common with the healthy self assured college students he sees on the subway and dreams of joining in the classroom Initially his American experience is as harrowing as his impoverished youth in Ireland including two of the grimmest Christmases ever described in literature McCourt views the US through the same sharp eye and with the same dark humor that distinguished his first memoir race prejudice casual cruelty and dead end jobs weigh on his spirits as he searches for a way out A glimpse of hope comes from the army where he acuires some white.

'Tis A MemoirCollar skills and from New York University which admits him without a high school diploma But the journey toward his position teaching creative writing at Stuyvesant High School is neither uick nor easy Fortunately McCourt's openness to every variety of human emotion and longing remains exceptional; even the most damaged difficult people he encounters are richly rendered individuals with whom the reader can't help but feel uncomfortable kinship The magical prose with its singing Irish cadences brings grandeur and beauty to the most sorrowful events including the final scene set in a Limerick graveyard Wendy Smith..

    Summary 'Tis A Memoir 100 'Tis A MemoirI seem to be somewhat in the minority here but I enjoyed 'Tis than Angela's Ashes Perhaps because I was already so invested in Frank's life so intrigued to see where he went next Or maybe because he had control over his life now he is an adult While he is still deeply affected by his circumstances he is now in a position to attempt to change them so it was a little less depressing to read I love his way with language how he can describe something that is both horrifying and humorous I don't want to spoil anything so I'll just say I loved finding out where he goes and how he got there Looking forward to reading the final volume soon📖

    Summary 'Tis A Memoir 100 'Tis A MemoirSadder in some ways than Angela's Ashes Whereas Angela's Ashes was a story of Frank McCourt fighting the odds and dangers of growing up in a Limerick slum and trying to escape this book is about Frank McCourt fighting with himself and occasionally American society This book reveals his darker side including his own battles with the drink though these are never as bad as his father's alcohol problems his insecurities and the chip on his shoulder about growing up in a slum Frank had a tough life even in America and while the book is occasionally humorous it is sad to see the way drinking contributes to a lot of his problems and the growing gulf between him and his mother McCourt's sparse writing style while refreshing only makes these problems seem worse In Angela's Ashes McCourt left Ireland in triumph as a victim turned hero while in 'Tis he is half victim half villain

    Summary 'Tis A Memoir 100 'Tis A MemoirI enjoyed this seuel to Angela's Ashes because of Frank McCourt's ability to recollect dialogue and his way of writing the words so well that you can just HEAR the Irish accent while you read It is so amazing and inspiring to see where Frank comes from the slums of Ireland with his essentially single mother to college eventually graduate school later a teacher in New York City It's a long road out of the slums out of his own head of fears limitations low self esteem to the place where he is able to make something of himselfOne thing about Frank as an author is that he tells the truth even if it's ugly and shows his own flaws I struggled with him drinking too much repeatedly visiting the Irish pubs especially after growing up WITHOUT his alcoholic father who couldn't prioritize his wife children ahead of his addiction
