            Through the masterful writing of a rebellious student, the story of a season in hell in a baccalauréat preparatory class in literature. A remarkable debut novel.

Welcome to the daily life of one of the “cauldrons” of the intellectual industry! On a guided tour through a portrait gallery, a first-year student in an intensive college preparatory class in literature scrutinizes his peers, dissects the habits of his sadist teachers who stink of mothballs, and is troubled by the situation of the weakest, those students who have come to the school on merit and who are forced to hide their origins from their bourgeois classmates and an invisible army of cleaning ladies. But while the noble institution intimates that each student will fit in through cramming sessions, it’s the time spent with great authors that that calms our hero’s indignation. In the guise of a revolt, he does the irredeemable: drawing obscene caricatures on a school desk. The punishment will only be more to his advantage. Ferocious and brilliant, this critique denounces the elitist French system of preparatory classes for the grandes écoles—the country’s most prestigious universities. With the tenderness of Prévert and the fireworks of Rimbaud as his only weapons, Arthur Nesnidal cuts his teachers’ academicism into tiny pieces and turns his chiseled prose on his aggressors, all the while hiding imperceptible alexandrine verses into his writing which give his Purge a bewitching scansion. A true work of art.
