Indeed, it was a life of incredible destitution, deprivation, disease, and death. The improvidence of McCourt's alcoholic father forced his desperate wife Angela to beg to feed her family. Yet Frank McCourt's amazing storytelling, humor, and compassion has transformed his grim experience into an inspiring and funny tale of survival, dignity, and love. Angela's Ashes spent a year on the bestseller lists and was awarded the "National Book Critics Circle Award" as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Biography. This beautiful book is bound in full-tooled leather with satin moiré endpapers, satin ribbon bookmark and 22kt gold on the spine. The spine has raised bands in the style of classic bookbinding. Beautiful gilt designs ornament the front as well as the back boards. The paper was made especially for this edition. The leather was cut entirely by hand. It includes a certificate of authenticity and a descriptive card laid in with biographical information as well as a few words about the book itself. Published by Easton Press it is a volume of heirloom quality and will be treasured for generations to come.
