Frank McCourt is Gone
Frank McCourt, the brilliant author of "Angela's Ashes", has died. This book was his memoir of a dismal, poverty-stricken, Irish Catholic childhood. It was published when McCourt was 66 year old - after decades of teaching English in NYC schools. It's an unforgettable true story written with amazing grace and humor. What a journey this man's life was.
