Frank McCourt, Author Of Angela's Ashes, Dies At 78
http://www.baltimoresun.com/entertai...,6088220.storyFrank McCourt, the Irish-American storyteller who parlayed the miseries of a Limerick upbringing into an extraordinary late-life literary blooming, died of cancer Sunday in New York City.
McCourt, 78, had spent the past 13 years buoyantly touring the globe on reading tours and writing two sequels to his 1996 best-seller, "Angela's Ashes," which sold more than 5 million copies and was translated into more than 20 languages.
I always admired the fact of his later life achievement.
R.I.P. Frank McCourt.
