Night School - A Reader for Grownups

Author(s): Zsófia Bán; Jim Tucker (Translator); Péter Nádas (Afterword by)


A story collection masquerading as an encyclopedia of life, Night School makes our all-too-familiar world appear simultaneously foreign and untamed, and brings together lust, taboos, and the absurd in order to teach us the art of living, all in a wildly clever way. Perfect for anyone looking for a little more Nohoo (or 'know-how') in your life, Zsofia Ban's mock-textbook, Night School: A Reader for Grownups covers all the important subjects, from self-help to geography to chemistry to French, complete with a hearty dose of irony. Ban's 'lectures' tell of the travels of young Flaubert to Egypt with his friend Maxime, and includes a missive from Laika the dog minutes before being blasted off into space, never to be seen again.
