So after Angela’s ashes I had to go out and continue Franks story and find out what became of him in America #history #bookstagram #mustread #frankmccourt #angelasashes #tisamemoir 📖 📚

So after re-reading Angela’s Ashes and Tis I have discovered these 2. #frankmccourt #malachymccourt #books #reading #australia

•Dovete studiare e imparare per farvi un‘opinione vostra sulla storia e su tutto, se la mente è vuota le opinioni uno non se le può fare. Riempitevi la mente, riempitevi la mente. La mente è il vostro tesoro e nessuno può ficcarci il naso. La mente è la vostra casa e se la riempite di robaccia, la manderete in malora. Potete anche essere poveri e avere le scarpe rotte ma la vostra mente sarà sempre un palazzo• #leceneridiangela #frankmccourt #book #booklover #bookstagram #instabook #alfalibro

"McCourt, aunque hayas nacido en Limerick, cultiva tu mente. Cultivad vuestra mente. Es vuestro tesoro y nadie puede entrometerse en ella. Si la llenáis de basura, se pudrirá en la cabeza. Podréis ser pobres, llevar los zapatos rotos pero vuestra mente...vuestra mente es un palacio." Las cenizas de Ángela fue la razón por la que me enganché a la lectura y un tesoro de libro que no se encuentra frecuentemente. Ayer, terminé "La vida ante sí" y puedo decir que encontré el segundo tesoro de lo que llevo leído. Un libro que habla como las personas y que sin dar más el coñazo, me ha emosionado, como lo hiciera un día Frank McCourt. He dicho. #lascenizasdeangela #angelasashes #frankmccourt #ireland #limerick #literature #books

Our Hometown (with Andrew @adsav8 )

Yesterday, we took to the skies. Arrow pointed up, compass to anywhere. Open book. Borne of the Great Miami bend, air-borne of a small field tucked away for few to find. The few, the proud. Morraine. Our breath was swallowed by Kentucky landscape (Falmouth) along the Licking and the coal power of the brown Ohio. Dam. Then north compass star. Into the bland expanse of our home state (O-H-I-O mother fucker, yeah), but from the air everything is beautiful. Maybe it's always beautiful. Maybe it's always been. New perspective can feed the eye, speak a truth that was hidden behind anger and depression. Goggle fog. Childhood is a bitch. But it's not. It's just another experience, less your own, but still your own. The seeds to your garden. The holds for your young feet. And soaring less than a thousand above the family home, isn't it beautiful too? Surrounded by trees and green and farmland, the home turf. The clay of self. And from a thousand up you can't hear the ramblings of the feckin eejits. And ain't that grand!? To see your childhood from the other side. Up above to down below. To leave your first depression behind, sunken, buried (six to eight feet down, burn baby burn), no headstone. Forgotten, not forgotten, respected, memorialized, built upon, just another plot of soil beneath the treading feet. The dancing feet. A thousand up. •#fuckyourhashtags #ittasteslikeshitgrandpa #twobuckchuck #thechronologyofwater #mylife #memoirinthemaking #ohio #leesburgohio #smalltown #itsgoingtobeokay #aerialphotography #daytrip #poemsofinstagram #ramblings #artinspiration #davidlynch #lidiayuknavitch #frankmccourt #memorylane #livinginthelanes #highlandcounty #fromabove #view #offthewing #offthecuff #soundoff #amen

Years ago I read Angela’s Ashes; I’ve always intended to pick up McCourt’s other books. I feel I’ve been sorely neglecting my memoir TBR; perhaps I’ll pick this one up soon!

I discovered memoirs in the English language, thanks to the wonderful Frank McCourt and his book “Angela’s Ashes.”
In reading an interview about how he came to write the book, and remember his upbringing, he said this, which resonates a lot with me and the way we grew up #devicefree in #cordobaargentina - Not having all those distractions really made us find new friends, treasure the ones we had, and play until late hours of the night on the street or at the park with them, stimulating creativity as well as building ever lasting memories.

Found a charity shop down the road that had an A++ selection. The Falmouth stores just don’t have an amazing choice and rarely get restocked. A lot of the time I’m wading through romance/ murder fiction to try and find something decent. We do have a second hand bookshop but I find it quite overpriced...

Missed bus stops. Exceeded lunch breaks. Only because I took my time to cry. #frankmccourt

It has been nearly 13 years since Frank McCourt publishes Angela’s Ashes. The sad, sweet memoir of his childhood in Ireland, marked by poverty, hunger, and the Catholic Church. His father, Malachy worked very little, and drank most of what he earned. McCourt spent his life listening to his father spin tales and fables, which made life endurable for the children. McCourt writes with a wry wit that makes his miserable childhood easier to read. While the reader feels heartbroken for the family, it is hard not to find the family endearing in their way. ⠀
...⠀
If this book has not found its way into your hands in the last 13 years, I can not recommend highly enough that you pick it up now. It has certainly become a modern classic of prose.⠀
