Overview

Las Cenizas de Ángela es una crónica de adultos a merced de la vida y de niños a merced de los adultos. Es por otra parte, una amalgama tal de patetismo y humor que uno nunca sabe si llorar o reír. Al final se termina llorando y riendo al mismo tiempo. No tema: no sólo tiene un final feliz, sino que a través de cada nuevo horror de la narración, sentirá la felicidad de sumergirse en la más maravillosa escritura que haya podido encontrar.

English Translation: The Ashes of Ángela are a chronicle of adults at the mercy of the life and children at the mercy of the adults. It is on the other hand, an amalgam so of patetismo and humor that one never knows if to cry or to laugh. In the end it is ended up crying and laughing at the same time. Nonsubject: it not only has a happy end, but that through each new horror of the narration, it will feel the happiness to submerge in most wonderful writing than has been able to find.

Stunning....Mr. McCourt does for the town of Limerick what the young Joyce did for Dublin.
The New York Times

It's astonishing that we had to wait two years for the Spanish edition of Angela's Ashes--and over 30 years for the translation of Tom s's Down These Mean Streets, a classic that first introduced the barrio to wider audiences. But at least they're here. It's also a treat to have this memoir from Jim nez, Cuban born and now a leading literary scholar living in the United States. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Astonishingly vivid.
