    Frank McCourt dies at 78

    Frank McCourt, the retired New York City schoolteacher who launched his late-in-life literary career by tapping memories of his grim, poverty-stricken childhood in Ireland to write the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir "Angela's Ashes," has died. He was 78.

    McCourt, who was recently treated for melanoma and then became gravely ill with meningitis, died today in New York City, his brother Malachy told the Associated Press.

    I was so sad when I read he was so ill last week. I knew it was coming but it still hurts. He was one of my favorite authors. God bless him and may he rest in peace.
