レビュー

(内容紹介より引用)

Nearly a decade ago Frank McCourt became an unlikely star when, at the age of sixty-six, he burst onto the literary scene with Angela's Ashes,the Pulitzer Prize -- winning memoir of his childhood in Limerick, Ireland. Then came 'Tis,his glorious account of his early years in New York. Now, here at last, is McCourt's long-awaited book about how his thirty-year teaching career shaped his second act as a writer. Teacher Manis 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. His methods anything but conventional, McCourt creates a lasting impact on his students through imaginative assignments (he instructs one class to write "An Excuse Note from Adam or Eve to God"), singalongs (featuring recipe ingredients as lyrics), and field trips (imagine taking twenty-nine rowdy girls to a movie in Times Square!). McCourt struggles to find his way in the classroom and spends his evenings drinking with writers and dreaming of one day putting his own story to paper. Teacher Manshows McCourt developing his unparalleled ability to tell a great story as, five days a week, five periods per day, he works to gain the attention and respect of unruly, hormonally charged or indifferent adolescents. McCourt's rocky marriage, his failed attempt to get a Ph.D. at Trinity College, Dublin, and his repeated firings due to his propensity to talk back to his superiors ironically lead him to New York's most prestigious school, Stuyvesant High School, where he finally finds a place and a voice. "Doggedness," he says, is "not as glamorous as ambition or talent or intellect or charm, but still the one thing that got me through the days and nights." For McCourt, storytelling itself is the source of salvation, and in Teacher Manthe journey to redemption -- and literary fame -- is an exhilarating adventure.

(商品説明より引用)

10年近く前、フランク・マコートはアイルランドのリマリックでの少年時代を回想した『アンジェラの灰』で文学界に突如現れ、ピューリッツァー賞を受賞。

66才という年齢で、思いがけなくスターになった。

次に発表された『Tis』では、ニューヨークでの若き時代を描いた。

この待望の『Teacher Man』には、マコートが30年の教師として働いたことが、いかに作家としての彼を形成したかが書かれている。
