Teacher Man is disappointing compared to Angela’s Ashes. It does not create a mood or employ humor. The first few chapters are about how teachers get short changed. And that was alright. But the incidents he retells throughout the recording are mundane. He does do a great job of imitating teenager whine. “Oh maaan, etc.” And some of his observations about the school system are worth visiting.
