  NEW YORK — Frank McCourt is gravely ill with meningitis and is unlikely to survive, the author’s brother says.
  Malachy McCourt says that his 78-year-old brother, best known for the million-selling "Angela’s Ashes," is in a New York hospice, "his faculties shutting down."
  "He is not expected to live," says McCourt, himself an author and performer.
  Frank McCourt was recently treated for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, but his brother says he had been doing well until about two weeks ago, when he contracted meningitis.
