Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Continues the sometimes harrowing tale of the author's youth as he immigrates from Ireland to the United States, joins the Army, goes to college, and begins building a life.


Review:

"'TIS is a considerably angrier book than ANGELA'S ASHES....largely animated by the feelings of resentment and envy that the young McCourt experienced in trying to overcome his family's legacy of poverty and deprivation....[The] descriptions are enlivened by McCourt's resilient sense of humor, they do not possess the lyricism or searing intimacy that fueled his childhood reminiscences in ANGELA'S ASHES."

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times, 09/14/1999

Review:

[T]his book has the same clairvoyant eye for quirks of class, character, and fate [as ANGELA'S ASHES], and also a distinct picaresque quality. It's a quest for an America of wholesome Hollywood happiness that doesn't exist, and it's about the real America--rendered with comic affection--that McCourt discovers along the way."

L.S Klepp, Entertainment Weekly, 09/24/1999

Book Description: SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Touchstone. 222 x 146 mm. Brand New Book. Frank McCourt s glorious childhood memoir, Angela s Ashes, has been loved and celebrated by readers everywhere for its spirit, its wit and its profound humanity. A tale of redemption, in which storytelling itself is the source of salvation, it won the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Los Angeles Times Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize. Rarely has a book so swiftly found its place on the literary landscape. And now we have Tis, the story of Frank s American journey from impoverished immigrant to brilliant teacher and raconteur. Frank lands in New York at age nineteen, in the company of a priest he meets on the boat. He gets a job at the Biltmore Hotel, where he immediately encounters the vivid hierarchies of this classless country, and then is drafted into the army and is sent to Germany to train dogs and type reports. It is Frank s incomparable voice--his uncanny humor and his astonishing ear for dialogue--that renders these experiences spellbinding. When Frank returns to America in 1953, he works on the docks, always resisting what everyone tells him, that men and women who have dreamed and toiled for years to get to America should stick to their own kind once they arrive. Somehow, Frank knows that he should be getting an education, and though he left school at fourteen, he talks his way into New York University. There, he falls in love with the quintessential Yankee, long-legged and blonde, and tries to live his dream. But it is not until he starts to teach--and to write--that Frank finds his place in the world. The same vulnerable but invincible spirit that captured the hearts of readers in Angela s Ashes comes of age. As Malcolm Jones said in his Newsweek review of Angela s Ashes, It is only the best storyteller who can so beguile his readers that he leaves them wanting more when he is done.and McCourt proves himself one of the very best. Frank McCourt s Tis is one of the most eagerly awaited books of our time, and it is a masterpiece. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780684865744
