The Accidental Teacher is a humorous and provocative account of the authors experience teaching English in a California public high school with absolutely no qualifications, training or previous experience. Equal parts McCourts Teacher Man and Keseys Cuckoos Nest with a dash of Sedaris and a shot of Hunter Thompson, the story follows Mr. Mandel as he muddles through his first year, mangling metaphors and alienating administrators while attempting to engage a very difficult group of teenagers. From his outsiders perspective, Mr. Mandel provides pointed commentaries on the troubling issues facing public education and poignant accounts of his students lives and his own personal journey; frequent digressions offer literary allusions from the subtle to the ludicrous. The author displays a wry sense of humor as he struggles to counter administrative absurdities, to appease his own Nurse Ratchet, and to compensate for his own deficiencies. The Accidental Teacher is certain to entertain and interest anyone who has taught, wants to teach, cares about public education, or dreams of changing careers late in life.
