About this book


'Tis a blessing that the author narrates his own work. McCourt follows up his Audie Award-winning performance inAngela's Asheswith another brilliant reading as he chronicles his return to post-World War II New York. Like all good storytellers, McCourt has good stories to tell;'Tispulses with grim adversity and quiet triumphs--character-shaping moments that gain the listener's empathy. What makes McCourt agreatstoryteller is his ability to give these moments just the right amount of humor and perspective. His lyrical tones are wise but not weary; he's survived life's challenges to tell his tale. And while it may be trite to credit McCourt's verbal skills to his Irish heritage, these war stories were undoubtedly polished amongst friends in the pubs.'Tisis Grammy material, and a perfect example of how an author's voice can enhance the written word. (Running time: 6 hours, 4 cassettes)--Rob McDonald--This text refers to theAudio Cassetteedition.
