Frank McCourt taught in the New York City public schools for

Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan. After retiring from teaching,
Frank and his brother, Malachy, performed their two-man show, A
Couple of Blaguards, a musical review about their Irish Youth. In
September 1996, Scribner published Frank's childhood memoir, Angela's
Ashes, which spent 117 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.
