FROM THE PUBLISHER - The sequel to the Pulitzer Prize-winning ANGELA’S ASHES,’TIS is the story of Frank McCourt’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. 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. . Small Paper Slice At Back Edge Of The Wrappers, Otherwise Very Good In Wrappers.
