I just finished Frank McCourt (Angela’s Ashes)second book, called ‘Tis, which is his sequel to Angela’s Ashes. What a riot! McCourt reminds me of a Saliger with Irish humor. Lots of drinking, lots of language, but what a picture of a poor immigrant’s life in New York.
I was struck with McCourt’s picture of the church–quite negative–but I got the sense he longed for it somehow. He was also brief in his description of how his first marriage failed and never mentions his current wife. I’m considering buying his third book Teacher Man, but I will be disappointed if he doesn’t fill me in on those details. If anyone has read Teacher Man, let me know.
