Frank McCourt

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.

    Aww, I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of one of your favorite authors. I haven’t read Angela’s Ashes, but if you recommend it I will add it to my list!

    Just wanted to say too that I loved your comment on my blog earlier, that’s so sweet that you would spend your “ideal day” volunteering! I love that!
