The topeka school

The topeka school ben lerner

The most talked-about novel of the season, from the most celebrated American writer of his generation 'The Topeka School is a novel of exhilarating intellectual inquiry, penetrating social insight an deep psychological sensitivity... To the extent that we can speak of a future at present, I think the future of the novel is here' - Sally Rooney 'A work of extraordinary intelligence and subtlety, of lasting importance' - the Observer Adam Gordon is a senior at Topeka High School, class of '97. His parents are psychologists, his mom a famous author in the field. A renowned debater and orator, an aspiring poet, and - although it requires a lot of posturing and weight lifting - one of the cool kids, he's also one of the seniors who brings the loner Darren Eberheart into the social scene, with disastrous effects. Deftly shifting perspectives and time periods, The Topeka School is a riveting story about the challenges of raising a good son in a culture of toxic masculinity. It is also a startling prehistory of the present: the collapse of public speech, the tyranny of trolls and the new right, and the ongoing crisis of identity among white men. 'One of the best writers working today... I expect to be recommending [this} for the rest of my life.' - the Sunday Times 'The Topeka School is brave, furious, and finally a work of love' - Ocean Vuong
