Frank McCourt, 1930-2009

by Maureen Puffer-Rothenberg on July 20, 2009 in Odum Library

Frank McCourt, who died July 19th, won the Pulitzer Prize for Angela’s Ashes, his memoir of growing up poor in Ireland. We have Angela’s Ashes and its follow-up Tis, as well as Teacher Man, McCourt’s account of his days as a New York City high school teacher.

You can hear McCourt talk about writing, teaching, poverty, alcoholism, meeting the Pope, and much more at FORA.tv.

Or, read “McCourt: A Storyteller Even as a Teacher” at the New York Times Web site.
