The Pulitzer-Prize winning author Francis "Frank" McCourt is said to be gravely ill and on his deathbed, according to his brother Malachy McCourt. Best known for his book Angela's Ashes, the 78-year-old is currently in hospice care in New York. His brother said that "[McCourt] is not expected to live". McCourt had recently been treated for skin cancer and had been recovering well until contracting meningitis two weeks ago.
