88 S. : Ill.
Limerick, 1934. It's cold and it's wet. Frank, his parents and three brothers have just come back from America to start a new life in Ireland. But life in Limerick is even harder than life in 1930s' New York. Frank's father, Malachy, is from the North of Ireland and people say he has the "strange look". He loves his family, but he also likes to drink... Seen through a child's eyes, Angela's Ashes tells the true story of Frank's experiences with school, work, girls, death and the Catholic Church.
