From the Inside Flap:

In this brilliant and surreal French thriller, a teacher commits suicide and a colleague takes over his class of strangely unsettling children. A novel that skates close to fantasy, it is also chillingly observant about our society and the children it produces.

About the Author:

Christophe Dufossé is a former schoolteacher who lives in Paris. School’s Out is his first novel.
Shaun Whiteside‘s translations from the French include novels by Amélie Nothomb, Michèle Desbordes, and Patrick Rambaud.
