Mitch Albom has created perhaps one of the memorable and endearing nonfiction accounts, from the late 20th century, with his esteemed Tuesdays with Morrie. Told from Albom’s point of view, it recounts the life lessons from his beloved professor, Morrie Schwartz, with whom Albom reconnected with late in Morrie’s life. Albom, who wanted to become a pianist in his youth, has become a fairly well off sports journalist, when he glimpses his old professor on the television one evening. The news feature, dubbed “A Professor’s Final Course: His Own Death”, spurs Albom into reestablishing their teacher-student relationship and friendship, 16 years after they last saw each other. Albom and Morrie begin meeting every Tuesday for several weeks, as Morrie divulges advice and wisdom, sharing laughs and tears. The writing of Tuesdays with Morrie captures the vitality of Morrie, and Albom’s simple rendering of life lessons, given to him by an extraordinary gentleman, is a moving and beautiful tribute to the life of Morrie Schwartz.
