Any additional comments?
This perhaps is not my favorite memoir. There is a great deal of sadness, loss, brutal poverty, and generally the harm humans do to each other and themselves. But, the perspective on life this man has, the obstacles he has overcome, the success he has achieved and the celebrity he has endured; all make for a most memorable read. He narrates the book himself, with a sly Irish accent, and an abundance of wit and humor. Sometimes he even breaks into song!
He is the brother of the famous Frank McCourt whose book I have not read, perhaps being writers is built into their DNA, I don't know. But I do know I will remember this book, and this man, for years to come.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, Malachy is funny and his brogue is just like my grandmothers!
What other book might you compare Death Need Not Be Fatal to and why?
it's not anything like Angela's Ashes, but he compliments Frank's story well.
