Book Title: Teacher Man

Here at last in paperback is Frank McCourt's critically acclaimed and bestselling book about how his thirty-year teaching career shaped his second act as a writer. "Teacher Man" is also an urgent tribute to teachers everywhere. In bold and spirited prose featuring his irreverent wit and heartbreaking honesty, McCourt records the trials, triumphs and surprises of teaching in public high schools. "Teacher Man" shows McCourt developing his unparalleled ability to tell a great story as, five days a week, five periods per day, he works to gain the attention and respect of unruly, hormonally charged or indifferent adolescents.

After his fabulous memoir, “Angela’s Ashes”, I read 'Teacher Man' on the strength of McCourt's name. A bit disappointing, as I was hoping for a fresh look at teaching. But I will read ‘Tis… definitely.
