9780007261697: Angela and the Baby Jesus

A beautifully illustrated Christmas story from one of the world’s most loved writers.

In ‘Angela and the Baby Jesus’, McCourt revisits his mother’s childhood. Set in Limerick at the turn of the century, ‘Angela and the Baby Jesus’ is the story of the Christmas when Angela was six and concerned about the baby Jesus on the altar of St. Joseph’s Church near School House Lane where her family lived. The story is written in the voice in which Frank McCourt’s told his internationally bestselling and award winning ‘Angela’s Ashes’. The story is illustrated by Loren Long. Like Dylan Thomas’ ‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales’, it is for readers of all ages.

Review:

Praise for ‘Teacher Man’:
‘McCourt has a compulsion to tell us the story of his life, but he does it so well – modulating beautifully from ventriloquistically exact repro teen-speak to rhapsodic meditations on his midlife crisis – that one couldn’t possibly want him to stop. I wish I could have been in one of his classes.’ Sunday Times

‘This memoir about teaching is unlike any other I have read: relatively mundane events and incidents shine against that backdrop of that pathetic, abused child.’ Francis Gilbert, Sunday Telegraph

Praise for ‘Angela’s Ashes’:
'An astonishing book…completely mesmerising – you can open it almost at random and find writing to make you gasp.' Independent

Praise for ‘Tis’:
'Few will be able to resist this pacey and fluent sequel…McCourt's gift lies not simply in having lived through interesting times, but in having developed his skills as an editor and narrator to produce two fine, funny and moving slices of a past that is not simply Ireland's, but everyone's.' Guardian

About the Author:

Frank McCourt’s first book, ‘Angela’s Ashes’, won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. He taught in various New York City high schools and in city colleges. His sequel to ‘Angela’s Ashes’, ‘Tis’, continued its predecessor’s huge success, as did ‘Teacher Man’, his memoir about being a New York high school teacher. He lives with his wife in New York.
