Writers Read: Jonathan Galassi reads from School Days: A Novel
Jonathan Galassi reads from School Days: A Novel (Other Press, 2022)
The new novel from the acclaimed poet and publisher asks fundamental questions about love and sex, friendship and rivalry, desire and power, and the age-old dance of benevolence and attraction between teacher and student. English teacher Sam Brandt is tasked with investigating abuse charges brought by a student against a teacher, and the process brings back complicated memories of his own past relationship with a mentor.
“Nostalgia, desire, and the treachery of long-held secrets collide in this absorbing psychological mystery set amid the casual cruelties of privilege and youth.”
—Julia Glass, author of Three Junes and Vigil Harbor
