The Finishing School: a Novel

The Finishing School: a Novel / Muriel Spark, read by Nadia May, 181 p.

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.
