Angela’s Ashes was set in the same time period as the great depression, which also negatively impacted the family. The kids focus on fires that they can see from “people 's windows and see how cozy it is in their kitchens with fires glowing,” This is the closest that they are going to get to the warmth radiating from the fires that they desperately wish to have.

The sun beat down on me with intently when I stepped out onto the sidewalk. Quickly I found shelter from the heat on a nearby bench surrounded by shade. However before I took a seat I removed my Desmond Merrion suit jacket, took off the silk Ralph Lauren’s Black label necktie and stuffed it into the pocked of the suit jacket.
