"In Teacher Man Frank turns his attention to the subject that he most often talks about in his lectures - teaching: why it's so important, why it's so undervalued. He describes his own coming of age - as a teacher, a storyteller and, ultimately, a writer. he is alternately humble and mischievous, down-trodden dn rebellious. he instinctively identifies with the underdog; his sympathies lie more with students than administrators. it takes him almost fifteen years to find his voice in the classroom, but what's clear in the thrilling pages of Teacher Man is that from the beginning he seized and held his students' attention by telling them memorable stories."
