Re: Frank McCourt Dies *sad*
I was not convinced that things could have been that bad in Limerick and suspect that he was exaggerating somewhat. Maybe I am wrong. Comfy Northern Ireland in the 40's and 50's was probably a world away from Limerick in the 30's and 40's.
I did not read the follow-up 'Tis, but it seems that many of the reviewers were not happy with it and thought McCourt might not be such an endearing person as the young boy in Ashes.
