Day 26 – Favorite Nonfiction Book


30 Day Book Challenge: Favorite Nonfiction Book

Angela’s Ashes, Frank McCourt

“When I look back on my childhood I wonder how I survived it all. It was, of course, a miserable childhood: the happy childhood is hardly worth your while. Worse than the ordinary miserable childhood is the miserable Irish childhood, and worse yet is the miserable Irish Catholic childhood.”

‘Tis is good, too.

  1. Of McCourt, I’ve only read Teacher Man. It was interesting, and his writing was fairly sharp, but he didn’t quite inspire me to seek out his other books. What about this book did you like so much?

    • The textbook that I use to teach my Literature I classes contains a chapter from AA, and I was intrigued to read more on my own. I quite like his style, and I enjoy memoirs, although I don’t read them as often as I would like. The book itself tends to be melodramatic at times, but it was an interesting read.

      My friends and family often tease me because I like the depressing stories, so that could also be part of its appeal. 🙂
