Following up with kiez amy's review on Angela's Ashes is 'Tis, the sequel to Angela's Ashes. Written with the similar depressing, witty, emotional, dreary tones that such characterized Angela's Ashes, 'Tis picks up where Angela's Ashes left off. Frank saves money, goes to America, potters around several jobs, war breaks out in Korea and he gets sent to Germany and his career remains somewhat static since he's a 'damn fine clerk'. Yeah, but he eventually struggles his way in America getting an education, fakes his way through being an English teacher, and falls in love & marries a Protestant American.
Bitterly whiny at times esp where concerning the Irish, but endearingly witty with his narrations of his life. Worth reading especially if you adored Angela's Ashes ;) graceshu # 6:11 PM
