Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This tale concerns the remedial schooling of John, an unruly young man, at a Cornish private school for boys in which the teaching staff are all completely female, young, and strong on discipline. It is set in the mini-skirted 1960s, and provocative clothing plays an important part in the latter ethos. His assigned teacher, Diana Hooper, fulfils her caning duties exceptionally frequently and with great enthusiasm, showing no favouritism for John, even though a bond between them starts to develop from the start. He is an orphan, and Miss Hooper becomes his governess in the long vacation, during which his schooling (and discipline) are significantly and painfully intensified. When his surviving relative dies, Miss Hooper attains a position of some power, and the story then becomes reminiscent of the classic novel `The English Governess'. The book is a powerful exposition of female domination in a scholastic environment, well larded with intrigue and a few surprise elements. Well above the average for the genre.
