Edoardo Albinati explores the history of male violence in his monumental novel . . . One of the most exciting novels of recent years. * Die Zeit * The Catholic School is entirely unique: it meanders, it is merciless, it is very precise and yet lyrical, thoughtful and fiery, depressing and funny. In short, it is one of the best books I have read in recent years. * De Morgen * In The Catholic School a thousand doors open on a thousand different themes . . . A powerful, multifaceted, acute, extreme book. * La Repubblica * An important, at times magnificent book . . . An entirely original narrative . . . A pivotal moment in contemporary literature. * Corriere della Sera *
