Description
In this 1995 novel, written between Patrick McCabe's Booker Prize finalists The Butcher Boy and Breakfast on Pluto, Malachy Dudgeon has escaped the misery and madness of his childhood home and landed a teaching job in the most famous school in Dublin. The headmaster, Raphael Bell, has overcome his own tragedies and forged a model career. But when Malachy Dudgeon and Raphael Bell meet, they entangle themselves in a macabre relationship that proves ruinous to their lives and their sanity. "McCabe can make you howl at the darkest antics," marveled Scotland on Sunday. "His novel is death on a laugh-support machine," while the Seattle Times called The Dead School "compelling literature.... The writing is seamless, the effect shocking: Imagine Apocalypse Now cheerfully narrated by Jimmy Stewart."
