it was amazing

I just love Frank McCourt's writing style. I read 'Tis years ago, and, like Angela's Ashes, I try to read this book at least once a year. 'Tis picks up where Angela's Ashes ended with McCourt's arrival in New York and his journey from working on the docks to a stint in the Army during the Korean War to becoming a teacher at one of the most prestigious high schools in the country, Stuyvesant. This book is much less depressing than Angela's Ashes, showing a true success story.

More than anything, I love the frankness of McCourt's delivery. He is unfailingly honest about his inner thoughts, fears, and triumphs. I think this honesty is what draws me to these books time and time again.

I love these books, so of course I recommend them to everyone I know!
