5 Stars

I really really liked this book. I had never heard of Frank McCourt before, but I had heard of "Angela's Ashes", which I have yet to read. "'Tis" is Frank McCourt's memoir. His account of his life from his childhood in Ireland, to his arrival and survival in New York. Throughout his life McCourt seems plagued by his tendency for paranoia and disappointment with his life, and somehow I found this to be comforting and extremely funny.

  1. I will have to send you Angela's Ashes... or give it to you the next time I see you. It's a good book, too. 'Tis is actually the sequel to Angela's Ashes. Angela's Ashes goes into great detail about his childhood in Ireland and ends as he's on the boat to America.
