In case nobdy knew this (shame on you if you did not), Frank McCourt is author of Angela's Ashes which is also a movie now. As well as 'Tis which is sort of the sequel to Angela's Ashes. It's basically an autobiography on his life in Ireland and in New York. Very very interesting.

I wish he was my English teacher...*sigh* are one lucky...person, f1r3br4nd.
