Angela's Ashes Angela's Ashes is a 1996 memoir by the Irish-American author Frank McCourt. The memoir consists of various anecdotes and stories of Frank McCourt's impoverished childhood and early adulthood in Brooklyn, New York and in Limerick, Ireland.
An excellent crime mystery. This precedes the books featuring Harry Bosch and Mickey Halloran and should be read before them. Connelly is a fine writer and this will keep you turning pages until the early hours.
