Now here at last, is McCourt's long-awaited 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.

"Should be mandatory reading for every teacher in America. And it wouldn't hurt some politicians to read it, too." (Publishers Weekly)
"Teacher Man is an irresistible valedictory, about a man finding his voice in the classroom, on the page and in his soul." (The New York Times)
Listening to McCourt makes me want to write! This is a great follow-up to his other memoirs. One of the memoirs I've most enjoyed listening to since he's an engaging narrator, as well. If you enjoyed his other books, you will enjoy this one. I feel like it's a real bonus to get to listen to an author read his own work.
