It was during the period of Depression, the McCourt’s had lost three children. When Frank was about thirteen years old, their father abandoned them and left for England. McCourt though a brilliant student was forced to leave school when he was just 14 years and work at the Limerick Post Office in order to fend for his family. However, Frank had the desire to fulfill his dreams and decided to leave his job at the Post Office and migrate to America. This decision had a great impact on Frank’s life and turned it around in his favor. So, after saving enough money, he left Ireland at the age of nineteen and came to New York City. For Frank, it was a whole new world altogether, considering the poverty-stricken background he came from. He admires the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the Empire State Building and says – “the sun turns everything to gold” (359) Frank worked hard at many different jobs but when the Korean War broke out, he was drafted into the army of the United States. By making use of the G.I Bill at New York University, he earned his College degree and after his graduation, he taught at the New York City Public School and became quite a successful teacher. Later, he taught at the highly competitive Stuyvesant High School, for the next thirty years of his life.&nbsp.It was only after his retirement that Frank reinvented his writing skills once again and wrote: “Angela’s Ashes” (1996) which made him quite famous by selling over 5 million copies after being translated into seventeen languages across 27 countries. He won several awards which included the Los Angeles Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize in 1997 for Biography. ‘Waiting for Snow in Havana’ is Carlos Eire’s most riveting memoir, that sheds light on the ‘Operation Pedro Pan’ when Carlos Eire and his elder brother Tony aged 11 and 14 are airlifted from Cuba to the U.S. It seemed like a dream to them as they enjoyed the panoramic view while they flew over the large ocean. They never imagined that they would not be seeing their mother in the next three years nor would they ever see their father again. This story is quite the opposite of what happened in the case of McCourt. In this moving tale, Carlos sheds light on the privileged life he led in pre- Castro Havana. Carlos had led an exceedingly charmed life as though in Paradise, surfing, watching American movies, enjoying birthday parties at luxurious places, swimming at special clubs and bursting firecrackers. In McCourt’s biography, we find that Frank had a very poor childhood where starvation was rampant in addition to an alcoholic father who never bothered to provide his family with food and security. On the other hand, Carlos’ father was a prominent and wealthy Cuban judge who provided his family with a good life. However, his father believed himself to be the reincarnation of King Louis XIV and his wife to be Marie Antoinette. After the fall of the Batista Government, Carlos found his childhood been disintegrated by loss and change because Fidel Castro had ousted President Batista on January 1, 1959, and decided to separate children from their families. By intuition, Eire’s mother insisted on getting the boys out of the country because she feared for their safety. However, their father did not agree to follow the boys to their next destination.
