The Little School: Tales of Disappearance and Survival

by

The Little School: Tales of Disappearance and Survival Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of Argentina's 30,000 "disappeared," Alicia Partnoy was abducted from her home by secret police and taken to a concentration camp where she was tortured, and where most of the other prisoners were killed. Smuggled out and published anonymously, The Little School is Partnoy's memoir of her disappearance and imprisonment.

Review:

"Partnoy's glimpses of her life in prison are understandably disjointed and meandering, but they stand as a record of character and fortitude." Louise Leonard, Library Journal

Partnoy's portrayal of her time in prison is brilliant and simply stated. There is this division that takes place in her writing that really makes the experiences seem all the more horrific. She integrates poetry, and her mother's art in the narrative, providing a multidimensional story.
