Some brief overview of this book

Since the publication of Angelas Ashes nearly a decade ago, Frank McCourt has become one of literatures superstars. He is the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award, the American Booksellers Association ABBY Award, and the Los Angeles Times Book Award. More than four million copies of Angelas Ashes are now in print; its sequel, Tis, has sold more than two million in America; and the books have been published in more than twenty countries and languages.

In Teacher Man Frank turns his attention to the subject that he most often talks about in his lectures-teaching why its so important, why its so undervalued. He describes his own coming of age-as a teacher, a storyteller, and, ultimately, a writer. He is alternately humble and mischievous, downtrodden and rebellious.

He instinctively identifies with the underdog; his sympathies lie more with students than administrators. It takes him almost fifteen years to find his voice in the classroom, but whats clear in the thrilling pages of Teacher Man is that from the beginning he seizes and holds his students attention by telling them memorable stories. And then it takes him another fifteen years to find his voice on the page.

With all the wit, charm, irreverence, and poignancy that made Angelas Ashes and Tis so universally beloved, Frank McCourt tells his most exhilarating story yet-how he became a writer.
