How It’s New York: Malachy McCourt is a literary Irish fixture in New York, one of the founders of Irish American Writers & Artists (IAWA), and the person who suggested the salon. This reading took place at SOPAC, NJ: South Orange Performing Arts Center. And one of the things about New York, of course, is that it’s tri-state!
How It’s Irish: McCourt is from Limerick, like his brother Frank (author of the famous Angela’s Ashes). He’s a writer too, and has that gift of the gab.
She has bit the dust, expired, gone to a better place and or the other side. And where is the other side exactly? How do you know if it is a better place? I’d like to know so that I can plan ahead.
There is a mystical air that you can feel in Ireland…Where incredible dreams are created and sometimes come true…I myself have been very blessed as I have lived a big and full life filled with incredible good luck! When I was a little boy I prayed hard for Santa to bring me the Lionel Train Set that I so admired in Limerick department store window. But it never came… ” Or so he thought. A few years ago, I finally got the Lionel train set.”
3. Prayers are a form of sacred storytelling…And like all good stories that have a rhythem, timing and delivery that is all their own.
4. There is but one word for sober: sober. That says it all!
5. We are all looking forward to reading Malachy’s soon to be released book, When I’m sober I’m not drinking.
