Book Beginnings on Friday: Angela's Ashes


Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Angela's Ashes : A Memoir by Frank McCourt

"My father and mother should have stayed in New York where they met and married and where I was born. "

Honestly, I don't know that things would have been any better in America. I think Frank's father would have drank no matter where they were, and although their family wasn't enormously helpful, they were a little bit, and that help wouldn't have been there for them in New York.

I agree that wherever they lived the family would have struggled.

It's been so long since I read this that I am tempted to pick it up again too.

Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings!
