The real meaning of "ashes"

by mkerrigan, February 12, 2016

The intepretation here is incorrect. In an interview, Frank McCourt explained that the book was called Angela's Ashes because the two books, Angela's Ashes and 'Tis, were supposed to be one book. As it worked out, however, they were split into two books, with Angela's Ashes ending with the word 'Tis' and 'Tis ending with Angela's ashes being scattered.
