While eating at the Azrieli Mall's Burger Ranch in Tel Aviv yesterday, I finished reading Frank Mc Court's Teacher Man. I enjoyed it very much, some of the stories ( all of them about fathers, if I remember correctly ) are very moving, and - as in Angela's Ashes and the less convincing 'Tis - Mc Court manages to combine drama with sometimes hilarious humor. Frank McCourt appears to have been an extraordinary teacher. I had no teacher like him, although I was blessed with some excellent teachers myself throughout my years at elementary and high school, two universities, an ulpan and a yeshiva.
