"Perfect for anyone looking for a little more Nohoo (or "know-how") in your life, Zsófia Bán's mock-textbook, Night School: A Reader for Grownups covers all the important subjects, from self-help to geography to chemistry to French, complete with a hearty dose of irony. Bán's "lectures" tell of the travels of young Flaubert to Egypt with his friend Maxime, and includes a missive from Laika the dog minutes before being blasted off into space, never to be seen again. A story collection masquerading as an encyclopedia of life, Night School makes our all-too-familiar world appear simultaneously foreign and untamed, and brings together lust, taboos, and the absurd in order to teach us the art of living, all in a wildly clever way"--Publisher's description.
