Frank McCourt, the author of ANGELA’S ASHES and ’TIS, wraps up his trilogy of memoirs with this account of the 30 years he spent teaching in New York public high schools, from his rocky beginning as a young man teaching English in a vocational school to his eventual destination--the rarefied halls of the elite Stuyvesant School. Throughout, McCourt was continually devising clever schemes to catch students’ interest (which often succeeded) and fighting against the red tape and stultifying restrictions thrust upon him by school bureaucrats (which often resulted in his being fired).
