Journal Entry 1 by wingBookworm-ladywing from Madrid, Madrid Spain on Monday, January 25, 2016
"In the extraordinary memoir that has won the praise of critics and the hearts of readers, Frank McCourt recounts the heartbreak and humor of his astonishingly poor childhood. Goergeously written from the innocent perspective of young Frank, this is a memoir more dramatic, suspenseful and mesmerizing than most novels."

McCourt's horrific memoir of his dreadful childhood in Ireland, with alcoholic father, a full quota of strange relatives/neighbours, appalling living conditions and the consequent distressing childhood illnesses. This is entertainingly described and well-written, so I can see why it won the Pulitzer Prize. Somehow I failed to make an emotional connection to the story though, perhaps because the reader knows all along that McCourt is now successful and living in New York.
