9780099505679: Home School

At the end of Charles Webb's first novel, The Graduate, Benjamin Braddock rescues his beloved Elaine from a marriage made not in heaven but in California.

It is now eleven years and 3,000 miles later, and the couple live in Westchester County, a suburb of New York City, with their two young sons, whom they are educating at home.

Through no accident, a continent now stands between them and the boys' surviving grandparent, now known as Nan, but who in former days answered to Mrs. Robinson. As the story opens, the Braddock household is in turmoil as the Westchester School Board attempts to quash the unconventional educational methods the family is practising.

Desperate situations call for desperate remedies - even a cry for help to the mother-in-law from hell. She is only too happy to provide her loving services - but at a price far higher than could be expected.

Charles Webb has a knack for pinpointing the horrors and absurdities of domestic life, and Home School displays all the precision and wit that made The Graduate such a long-lasting success..

Product Description:

Title: Home School <>Binding: Paperback <>Author: Charles Webb <>Publisher: ARROW

Review:

"It offers a witty and bitingly accurate tale of suburban frustration whose slightness is integral to its charm." ( Daily Mail)

"

Charles Webb's sequel to THE GRADUATE sparkles with as much wit

and invention as the original. Throughout the book, everything - dialogue, characterisation, even incident - is pared down to a minimum, and yet the result, far from being undernourished, hums with richness and vitality. So here's to you Mrs Robinson, and to Charles Webb for doing such a fine job of resurrecting her.

" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Distinctive, wry, spare and beautifully modulated" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Forty years overdue, the sequel to The Graduate was worth the wait. A great read." ( The London Paper)

"By utilising the same wry humour and pinpoint characterisation of the first novel, and by delving even further into the dark motives of the iconic Mrs Robinson, Webb has made this continuation of a classic believable and entertaining." ( The Works)
