The Finishing School: a Novel
Rowland and Nina own and operate College Sunrise, a small, highly personalized school for wealthy young people in Ouchy, Switzerland. One of their charges, Chris Wiley, is at age 17 well on his way to publishing a novel, which fact makes Rowland, himself an almost-novelist, wildly jealous. Similar themes of tortured teacher-student relationships to Miss Jean Brodie, but even more cynical and arch, too much so for me.
