I just heard that Frank McCourt, one of my favorite authors, has died at the age of 78. Most of you have probably heard of Angela’s Ashes, but it was ‘Tis , in my opinion, that truly showcased his ability to write pieces that were simultaneously heartbreaking and hilarious. He took a hellish upbringing and made it funny and relatable and applicable to people struggling anywhere in the world. Sad sad times when we lose great writers.
Go n-eiri an bothar leat, Frank.
