Set in a Bruce Springsteen rustbelt town, this biography of a high school drama teacher extraordinaire is engaging and even inspiring. The author - once a student of the book's subject - uses the narrative as an opportunity to look at modern social and educational developments. It's the story of education in the part of America that has been left behind. It's also the story of Lou Volpe, whose forty year career as a high school drama teacher has transformed the lives of hundreds, even thousands of students. And who doesn't love to hear about people doing the job the great universe intended them for?
