'Tis A Memoir By McCourt, Frank Book - 1999

I thoroughly enjoyed Angela's Ashes in book and audiobook form. Slightly less so 'Tis, although it is a good complement to the first book with biographical details after Frank's return to New York. Its ending seems conclusive and, since his third book Teacher Man is more of an afterthought that I found rambly and overly repetitive, I think it might have been better to just expand the latter parts of this second book instead. On a side note, it was interesting to learn the author knew the Clancy brothers.
