Description: Heather McGowan's complex, richly nuanced writing has already won the admiration of today's leading literary lights. Rick Moody calls McGowan "the most elegant, arresting, and lucid prose stylist I have encountered in years". For Jonathan Lethem, ""Schooling" is simply one of the most special books I've ever had the chance to read", and Alice Hoffman finds McGowan's prose "so gorgeous and fluid, so achingly alive, you will remember what it's like to read something brand-new".

Catrine Evans, a young American, is sent to an English boarding school after her mother dies of cancer. Thrust into an unfriendly world and ridiculed for her American accent, Catrine lays bare her thoughts and feelings in a luminous stream-of-consciousness narrative. Memories of Isabelle, the best friend she left behind in Maine, give way to dreams haunted by images of an accidental death she believes they caused before she left for England; newly awakened hopes and desires interweave with the old as she gradually adjusts to her new environment. With the beginning of a relationship with her chemistry teacher, her language soars to astonishing heights; its painful end brings forth words and images that subtly reflect Catrine's deeper understanding of herself and the world. Culminating in a startling revelation, "Schooling" is a work of great beauty and power, a tour de force of literary artistry.
