HarperCollins Publishers: 'McCourt has a compulsion to tell us the story of his life, but he does it so well -- modulating beautifully from ventriloquistically exact repro teen-speak to rhapsodic meditations on his midlife crisis -- that one couldn't possibly want him to stop. I wish I could have been in one of his classes.' Sunday Times 'This memoir about teaching is unlike any other I have read: relatively mundane events and incidents shine against that backdrop of that pathetic, abused child.' Francis Gilbert, Sunday Telegraph 'In this third memoir, McCourt recounts his years as a high-school teacher in New York, where he would stop at nothing to reach his surly charges. Nine times out of 10, his approach was successful and it is exhilarating to see these generations of tough-talking teenagers blossom.' Observer 'McCourt's gift for mellifluous storytelling means that his tales of jubilation and disillusionment never disappoint.' Pick of the Week, Daily Telegraph 'McCourt's many fans will of course love this book, but it also should be mandatory reading for every teacher in America. And it wouldn't hurt some politicians to read it, too.' Publishers Weekly 'As good as writing gets about teaching and learning and finding yourself through writing.' USA Today 'Heart-warming.' New York Times 'McCourt has an undeniable gift for turning a phrase.' Boston Globe 'Damn entertaining!McCourt is a master racouteur.' Washington Post
