Synopsis:

Set in a New England boarding school as America prepares to enter into World War II, an elegant and witty novel follows three unforgettable characters--William Grove, the quiet editor of the school newspaper, Jack Draper, a crippled chemistry teacher, and Edith Stone, the schoolmaster's young daughter. Reprint.


Review:

"Bittersweet, elegiac, A GOOD SCHOOL is Richard Yates's gentlest book, the one in which he shows the most overt love and pity for his people. The loneliness and yearning of Yates's adolescents and even his few adults comes through beautifully, and there's that same sense of innocence tested, that same compassion that kept THE EASTER PARADE from turning savage."

Stewart O'Nan, Boston Review, 10/01/1999
