My favorite Irish-American author

It is always sad when your favorite author dies. How can they write more books? Last summer, I was very saddend to hear about the passing of one of my favorite authors, Frank McCourt. On a day that we celebrate everything Irish, I think I might have to check out one of his titles for a reread. You should too. If you haven't read them yet, even better.

Hopefully his brother, Malachy McCourt will hang in there. I like his books too. A Monk Swimming is my favorite of his books.

I just discovered the youngest brother, Alphie McCourt writes too! I'll pick up his book right after I'm done reading my much anticipated celebrity biography.

On the subject of favorite Irish authors, allow me to throw my support to Flann O'Brien. The Third Policeman is one of my all-time favorites!

I like Cecilia Ahern. She wrote P.S. I Love You, which was turned into the movie of the same name.
