Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Malachy McCourt

Biography & Memoir • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

No one else could perform the life story of the eccentric and brilliant Malachy McCourt. Now in his 80s, the bestselling author (who never graduated from grammar school) and talk-radio pioneer looks ahead to the inevitability of death--and spits in its face. McCourt talks about his life in Brooklyn and Ireland; his saintly mother, Angela; and his equally famous brother, Frank, who wrote of ANGELA'S ASHES. The audiobook is like sitting at the dinner table listening to a beloved uncle talk about his life. He sings, he jokes ("I'm an atheist, thank God"), and he tells us not to fear death. More importantly, with good humor and an endless supply of stories, he teaches us to accept our fate and die leaving no stone unturned. M.S.
