Quote of the Week: Frank McCourt

“At 66, you're supposed to die or get hemorrhoids ... I just wrote the book and was amazed and astounded that it became a bestseller and won the Pulitzer Prize. It still hasn't sunk in.” -- Frank McCourt after winning the Pulitzer Prize for Angela’s Ashes in 1997.

Frank McCourt died in New York yesterday after a long illness. He was 78. More here at January Magazine.
