Frank McCourt: Teacher Man

July 19th, 2009

When I heard today that Frank McCourt had died, I remembered that I had recently come across an audiotape of his book,  Teacher Man, which is about his 30 years teaching in the New York City public schools before he became an author. 

I listened to Angela’s Ashes on audiotape, read by McCourt himself.  And I remember that it wasn’t only his words that stirred me; but also his voice–it’s magical. 

This audiobook is also read by McCourt– still sealed in its package.   And though I recently posted some audiobooks and I don’t normally follow up so soon with something similar, I thought I”d make an exception.

    Well, I recently won audiobooks here, but I would love to swap those (when I’m done!) with whoever wins this! My daughter is a teacher in an inner city school and I think she would really appreciate this.

    Either way, I will be cluttercasting some audiobooks myself, when done!

    Thanks again Darryle – cluttercasting is brilliant!

    I would love this audiobook and would be even more delighted to swap later with Maria. I grew up in New York City and have many relatives who are teachers.

    This would be a wonderful inspiration for me to prepare for next year. I’m a teacher and school has become little more than a test factory for the kids. I need to be inspired! I’ve always wanted to read (or listen) to his books. I have a long commute to school so this would be perfect to play in the car.
