About the Author

MALACHY MCCOURT was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1931, but grew up in Limerick, Ireland. He returned to the United States at the age of 20 where he says he "did a bit of dishwashing, long-shoring, military service, bartending, stage acting, and saloon owning." His greatest achievement of all is his 51-year marriage to his wife, Diana, who has blessed him with five children and eight grandchildren.

Words cannot even begin to describe how much I adore Malachy McCourt. First introduced to him through my all-time favorite book, “Angela’s Ashes,” it’s been a wonderful journey learning more about him through his own works. This is a bittersweet novel about death that evokes both tears and a lot of laughter. It’s a memory of a life well-lived. He is the last of the McCourt boys and I hope he is with us all for many years to come. No matter what, it is good to know that he is at peace with death and not afraid. I only wish I could be so brave. Highly recommended. This unbiased review is based upon a complimentary copy provided by the publisher.
