A compelling portrait of a relationship between a young man and a matriarch. Orphaned and friendless, young Felix Latimer comes to war-time Jerusalem to lodge with Miss Bohun, one of the most redoubtable (and ridiculous) of comic horrors in English fiction.

Industry Reviews

"Here is a woman of unfathomable depths of meanness and cunning -- a triumph of portraiture, compassionate, witty and assured." * Time and Tide * "Distinctly out of the ordinary, School for Love shows remarkable qualities of force and originality." * Times Literary Supplement * ""Deep, sharp and narrow." That is a phrase which has been applied to some of the finest mathematical analysts: I should like to borrow it to describe Olivia Manning -- This is a remarkable book." * C. P. Snow * "In common with the best writers, Olivia Manning has, besides wit, a sympathetic heart and a barometer-like sensitivity to the vagaries of human behaviour" * Birmingham Post *
