This third volume of Frank McCourt's memoirs covers his 30-year career as a teacher in the New York school system, and is the weakest of the trilogy. It lacks the lyric power of "Angela's Ashes" or the sense of adventure of "'Tis". "Teacher Man" describes a man sleepwalking through much of his adult life. It doesn't really catch fire until the last 50 pages.
