Editorial Reviews

Most famous for his Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir, Angela's Ashes, Frank McCourt was a staple in the Manhattan literary scene up until his passing, in 2009. Now, however, his words are available in this interview as part of the series Live at 92nd Street Y. Recorded in 2005, McCourt is joined by Alphie McCourt and Malachy McCourt, his brothers, both authors in their own rights. Frank McCourt is his characteristically entertaining self and reads beautifully from his newest work Teacher Man: A Memoir.

Publisher's Summary

The recently passed award-winning author of the memoirs Angela'a Ashes and 'Tis discusses his writing, his life, and teaching as a profession. He reads from Teacher Man: A Memoir.
Listen to titles from Frank McCourt.

God Bless Frank McCourt!

Iwish this performance was longer! I have read all three books by Frank McCourt and cherished each story as they have reflected aspects of my life. As a former teacher I praise him for his honesty about the profession - the day-to-day drudge, the lack of respect from others, the sustaining thrill of a positive review from a former student, etc. A fun aspect to this performance was the introduction by McCourt's oldest & youngest brothers. Hearing the banter between the three brought new life to Frank's stories.

Not just for TEACHERS…GREAT LISTEN for EVERYONE!

Would you consider the audio edition of Frank McCourt at the 92nd Street Y to be better than the print version?

DEFINITELY!

Any additional comments?

Great performance by an "Ordinary" Extraordinary Teacher Man. Insightful and FUN at the same time!

From One Teacher to Another

After reading so much about Frank McCourt and his brothers, it was a treat to listen to him and to them. Being a teacher myself, I certainly identified with the stories he had to tell. I would have loved to be in his class.

McCourt Discusses Teaching in NY

A pleasant diversion but not a talk about his books or his life. You may enjoy but it's not a shattering performance.
