Tis A memoir by Frank McCourt

$8.00

The Sequel to Angela's Ashes

'That's your dream out now. That's what my mother would say when we were children in Ireland and a dream we had came true. The one I had over and over was where I sailed into New York Harbor awed by the skyscrapers before me I'd tell my brothers and they'd envy me for having spent a night in America till tey began to claim they'd had that dream, too... I appealed to my mother. I told her it wasn't fair the way the whole family was invading my dreams and she said, Allah, for the love o' God, drink your tea and go to school and stop tormenting us with your dreams.'

'Tis is the story of Frank's American journey from impoverished immigrant with rotten teeth, infected eyes and no formal education to brilliant raconteur and schoolteacher. Saved first by a straying priest, then by the Democratic party, then by the United States Army, and then by New York University - which admitted him on a trial basis though he had no high school diploma...'
