McCann remembers McCourt
Let the Great World Spin by Irish-American writer Colum McCann triumphed last night in the fiction category at the National Book Awards. There’s been lots of interest in this novel for some time now – last month it was AbeBooks fourth bestselling signed book. There’s plenty of signed copies available right now and they start at $35 and range up to $200.
McCann dedicated his award to another Irish-American writer, “good old Frank McCourt,” who died earlier this year. “I think he’s dancing upstairs,” he said.
