    'Angela's Ashes' is the luminous memoir of Frank Mccourt who was born in Depression-era Brooklyn to Irish immigrants and raised in the slums of Limerick, Ireland. Frank's mother, Angela, had no money to feed the children since Frank's father, Malachy, rarely worked, and when he did drank away his wages. Yet Malachy did nuture in Frank an appetite for the one thing he can provide: a story. Perhaps it is a story that accounts for Frank's survival. Frank endured poverty, near starvation and the casual cruelty of relatives and neighbors--yet lived to tell his tale with eloquence, exuberance and remarkable forgiveness. Presented on 12 CDs, running time approximately 15 hours. Unabridged.

    A #1 New York Times Bestseller. British journalist Lynn Truss's entertaining anecdotal history of English punctuation identifies her as an admitted stickler for the proper use of commas, apostrophes,semicolons, and dashes. Truss's take on the practiced preservation of the system of printing convention that is too subtle for disuse is that it really does matter. Even if it is only occasionally a matter of life and death. From George Orwell shunning the semicolon to New Yorker editor Harold Ross's epic arguments with James Thurber over commas, Truss's defense makes...comma sense! Includes a limited-edition Punctuation Repair Kit. Bibliography. 209p.

    The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of 'Angela's Ashes' was sixty-seven when he burst onto the literary scene with the memoir of his childhood in Limerick, Ireland; a second book, ''Tis,' gave a glorious account of his early years in New York. Long-awaited, McCourt's third book accounts for how his thirty-year teaching career shaped his second act as a writer, as well as making an urgent tribute to teachers everywhere. His bold and spirited prose features a signature, irreverent wit and heartbreaking honesty in recording the trials, triumphs, and surprises he faced in public high schools around New York City, all the while creating a lasting impact on his students. And the path of his own writing. 258p.
