“Tuesdays With Morrie” is the story of Mitch Albom’s relationship with his college professor, Morrie Schwartz. Mitch had not been in touch with Morrie for 16 years. One night while watching TV Mitch was surprised to see his old college professor being interviewed byTed Koppel on the “Nightline” programme about what it was like to die from Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Mitch felt both horrified and ashamed. He had shared a wonderful relationship with Morrie as his professor but had made no effort to see him since he had graduated. Immediately he made contact with his old professor and friend, flew to Boston for a reunion, and began to visit Morrie on a weekly basis. During their weekly visits Mitch quickly became aware that not only was he rekindling his relationship with Morrie but that he was also tackling a larger subject, the meaning of life.
