Reviews

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 PRAISE FOR ANGELA'S ASHES: 'Brilliant and seductive.' THOMAS KENEALLY, author of Schindler's List 'Writing in prose that's pictorial and tactile, lyrical but streetwise, Mr McCourt does for the town of Limerick what the young Joyce did for Dublin: he conjures the place for us with such intimacy that we feel we've walked its streets and crawled its pubs.' New York Times PRAISE FOR 'TIS: "Tis is a work of great charm and power, perhaps even more so than its predecessor.' Mail on Sunday
