Frank McCourt Dies

Frank McCourt died today after a long battle with meningitis. He is one of my favourite authors and I am sad to see him go.

Re: Frank McCourt Dies

What?! This is bullshit. No more deaths this year, or I go on strike.

RIP Frank McCourt. He's also one of my favorite authors.

Re: Frank McCourt Dies

Frank's work meant a lot to me. His brother Malachy has a good novel called a monk swimming.

Re: Frank McCourt Dies

Yeah I like Malachy too. He got the name "A Monk Swimming" because during the Hail Mary when they say "Amongst Women" he thought it was a monk swimming (when he was little of course!) I think both brothers are wonderful writers. I wonder if Malachy will write another book....

Re: Frank McCourt Dies

^ That reminds me at a restaurant in Walsenburg, CO, where the waitress asked if I want to have a Super-salad, what confused me allot. She actually asked if I want to have a soup or salad (to my meal) but it turned out to sound like super-salad with her southern(?) accent ^_^

Funny, but wasn't the sole one getting her wrong this evening
