Book summaries (1st Term) Intermediate Level


Teacher Man by Frank McCourt.
Contemporary / American English.

When Frank McCourt becomes a teacher in New York, he finds himself standing in front of bored, confused, angry students. Will he fail as a teacher? Or can he use his miserable Irish childhood to help his students? This is the true story of one man’s surprising, upsetting, but sometimes very funny experiences in the classroom.






The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Fantasy & Horror / British English
'When we are happy, we are always good,' says Lord Henry, 'but when we are good, we are not always happy.'
Lord Henry's lazy, clever words lead the young Dorian Gray into a world where it is better to be beautiful than to be good; a world where anything can be forgiven - even murder - if it can make people laugh at a dinner party.
