A New York Times Bestselling Author
By his own account, Frank McCourt was one of the greenest, least prepared, most intimidated men in the world the day he confronted 35 disenchanted Staten Island adolescents in his first English class in 1967. On that morning, he made himself into a story, and students were paying attention. Over the course of many years, Frank finds his own voice by telling stories that would keep an adolescent engaged. He discovers where his loyalties lie - with students, not principals; what's wrong with allegedly classless American culture; and why he will always understand an underdog.
