Over a decade ago Frank McCourt became an unlikely star when at the age of 66 he burst onto the literary scene with Angelas Ashes the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir of his childhood in Limerick Ireland. Then came Tis his glorious account of his early years in New York. McCourts classic audiobook 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 he faces in public high schools around New York City.

Teacher Man shows McCourt developing his unparalleled ability to tell a great story as he works to gain the attention and respect of unruly hormonally-charged or indifferent adolescents. McCourts rocky marriage his failed attempt to get a Ph.D. at Trinity College Dublin and his repeated firings due to his propensity to talk back to his superiors ironically lead him to New Yorks most prestigious school Stuyvesant High School where he finally finds a place and a voice.Binding: Audio CDAbridgedAuthor: Frank McCourt
