A Long Stone's Throw : The McCourt family gained fame and notoriety through the stories of brother Frank (Angela's Ashes), and Malachy (A Monk Swimming), and with the two popular documentaries that followed. In A Long Stone's Throw, the youngest McCourt brother, Alphie, adds his gifted voice to this literary chorus with a vivid, emotional memoir. Alphie's colorful tales begin with him following in his older brothers' footsteps as he escapes a miserable childhood in Limerick and heads to America. An aimless existence filled with drink and misadventure follows an adolescent Alphie on his travels, until he lands on steady ground, finally, in a happy new home: New York City. Unabridged on 9 compact discs. Read by the author.
