teacher. I never met Frank McCourt, but after reading his books, I felt that i knew
him as a friend.
And what an odd coincidence: the "ReCaptcha" code for my comment was
And my capcha code is "rang loss". I'm sure the bells are tolling now.
I too, attended Stuy but alas never got into Mr. McCourt's class despite herculean efforts. They broadcast an interview on Fresh Air that mentioned Stuy a few times. Presently, I don't reside with the literati so, when I mentioned our loss of Frank McCourt, no one knew who he was. Another sadness. Thanks for your remembrance.
I almost forgot: Did you ever see "A Couple of Blaggards" with Frank and his brother, the actor, Malachi? It too, had a lot of the material from Angela's Ashes.
You got me with this one. I had friends at Stuyvesant but left NY just a few years after McCourt started there so never heard about him until he published. You're very lucky for that time.
Court. He seemed like a great guy! NPR archives past show podcasts for two
weeks free, after that I think there i s a small fee. If you would like to
download the podcast and listen, it is available here for a limited time:
It was a very good interview. Terry is a very good at what she does and Frank
is just the kind of guy I found immediately enjoyable. He could have talked
all day, and I would have listened. It is an mp3 file that plays in iTunes and
will keep for as long as you like.
Joel, thanks for sharing your experiences with Frank, It is inspiring to hear of
the difference he made for you.
