About the Narrators

MALACHY MCCOURT was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1931, but grew up in Limerick, Ireland. He returned to the United States at the age of 20 where he says he "did a bit of dishwashing, long-shoring, military service, bartending, stage acting, and saloon owning." His greatest achievement of all is his 51-year marriage to his wife, Diana, who has blessed him with five children and eight grandchildren.

Juliet Stevenson has won the prestigious Audie Award and numerous Earphones Awards for her narrations.
