9780961027605: No Talking in the Lavatory

The author, himself a student in Catholic schools for 12 years, so captures the essence of parochial school life in the 50s that the pages gradually meld into a fascinating experience. Sometimes, the experience is a bit painful, sometimes embarrassing. But, almost always, intensely humorous. It begins in 1946 at St. Peter's Grade School where "Yes, Sister" quickly becomes "Yes, Ster." And searches for "steelies" and "cats eyes" marbles, to the uninitiated become a part of daily life. It culminates with the fourth year of high school where the contraband searches may have become more sophisticated, but eh "immaculate misconceptions" about religion and its purpose continue. The author shows a unique, exceptionally thorough understanding of human nature throughout. For those who have experienced a parochial education, this work will provide a truly warm, reminiscent trip down a path that has never really been explored before. For those who have not been "privileged" with such an experience, it will provide not only an insight into another world of education, but also a delightful, unforgettable reading treat.
