A Peculiarly English Education
There's something deeply unsettling about the school of Saint Eusebius Abbey. Fanatical monks run the school with the power of the birch rod and it isn't just reserved for unruly pupils. A Peculiarly English Education is graphic, gripping and full of dark happenings that have even darker explanations. More
In the bitter winter of 1947, in a train rattling through the bleak flatlands of eastern England, a small boy clutches his teddy bear and wonders what the new school he has been shipped off to will prove to be like. Meanwhile on another train, a young man fresh from war service is heading gloomily towards the same, destination, where he hopes to escape from a confused sexual past and start a new life as a schoolmaster. Little do either imagine what horrors the brutal regime of Saint Eusebius Abbey has in store for them, or the dramas that will ensue when they challenge it. A Peculiarly English Education is a graphic but highly entertaining story of abuse, oppression and rebellion at an English prep school which would make the average prison camp look like paradise.
