Reviews

Michiko Kakutani "The New York Times" The reader of this stunning memoir can only hope that Mr. McCourt will set down the story of his subsequent adventures in America in another book. "Angela's Ashes" is so good it deserves a sequel.
Malcom Jones, Jr. "Newsweek" It is only the best storyteller who can so beguile his readers that he leaves them wanting more when he's done. With "Angela's Ashes, " McCourt proves himself one of the very best.
