Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award-winning author of Angela's Ashes describes his coming of age as a teacher, storyteller, and writer, a personal journey during which he spent fifteen years finding his voice in the classroom and came to terms with the undervalued importance of teaching. Reprint. 1,000,000 first printing.


Review:

"The same dark humor, lyric voice and gift for dialogue [from his two previous books] are apparent here....The teaching profession's loss is the reading public's gain, entirely." (starred review)

Kirkus, 09/15/2005

Review:

"McCourt's many fans will of course love this book, but it also should be mandatory reading for every teacher in America. And it wouldn't hurt some politicians to read it, too." (starred review)

Publishers Weekly, 09/12/2005

Book Description: SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 216 x 142 mm. Brand New Book. 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. For McCourt, storytelling itself is the source of salvation, and in Teacher Man the journey to redemption--and literary fame--is an exhilarating adventure. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780743243780
