Remembering Frank McCourt

'Tis was the first McCourt novel I read. Not even the best-selling Angela's Ashes. But still, before I knew there was Angela's Ashes, I already fell in love with this guy, even if his way of writing was kinda erm, unique. I immediately read Teacher Man right after it was released or that time I finally found it on the book shelves. It was entertaining, funny and touching. The whole time I was reading it, I always picture my own grandmother, who was a retired teacher too. I was so amused with his family that even his brother Malachy's novel, I bought and read.

With Mr. McCourt's death, I guess it's about time to start leafing through, and relived days with Angela. Funny how I've always have the book but never got to reading it.

On the bright side, you are now in the company of the best writers in the world. Have an intellectual but fun conversation with 'em!
