Product Description From Booklist The second installment in McCourt's fluent and bewitchingly candid memoir will be eagerly embraced by a reading public madly in love with the first the award-winning and best-selling Angela's Ashes (1996). Here McCourt still simultaneously voluble and precise chronicles his return to New York the city of his birth. A high-school dropout with a thick brogue terrible teeth and skin and red and infected eyes he is easy pickings for a priest who helps him get settled then attempts to molest him. This distressing introduction to the perversity of life in America kicks off an almost unbelievable series of humiliations and hardships as McCourt works soul-crushingly menial jobs for pittance and is confronted both with vicious anti-Irish prejudice and tedious Irish pride--nearly everyone he meets recounts their Irish genealogy and tells him to stick to his own kind. McCourt stubbornly dreams of becoming a teacher and writer but often retreats from the demands of college and work into the comforting haze of alcohol the bane of his family. Finally after a stint in the army and years of being mocked for his bookish ways he succeeds in becoming a teacher and his riveting accounts of his crazy classroom experiences in a Staten Island vocational high school at the height of McCarthyism are not to be missed. His family is present too of course. His mother Angela remains depressed even under her sons' solicitous care. His father is impossible right up to the day he dies and McCourt's brothers Malachy (who has also written a memoir) and Mike live "bright carefree" lives while he does everything the hard way the only way he knows how and frankly the only approach to life he fully respects.

Review Peter Collier Los Angeles Times Book Review 'Tis has those elements that made Angela's Ashes such a success -- the narrative brio the fierce sympathy for human tie and torment the intuitive feel for character and above all the love of language. Malcolm Jones Newsweek 'Tis is the story of a man finding two great vocations -- teaching and storytelling...a hard-nosed but lyrical conclusion to the story begun in Angela's Ashes. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
