I Read "Angela's Ashes"

    Sometimes...

    A book moves you in a very deep way. This is one. Frank McCourt is an amazing storyteller. This is a very poignant story, and he does an amazing job with his memoir. It is one of a very few nonfiction books that I read over and over... His story is not that original, growing up...
