I was very saddened today to hear of the death of the author of Angela’s Ashes today as I read today on:


I recall reading his book a few years back and his struggle with poverty and hardship in Ireland really touched me. His ability to find humour in hardship made the story all the more wonderful. Who can ever forget the confessional scene?

Although he tried to continue the genre in ‘Tis’ and ‘Teacher Man’ his first novel will remain as one of my favourite stories. I do recall it transferred well to the big screen. Together they are the must Read and See for everyone.

Rest In Peace Frank.
