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. Her writings were smuggled out of prison and published anonymously in human rights journals.

The Little School is Alicia Partnoy's memoir of her disappearance and imprisonment in Argentina in the 1970s. Told in a series of tales that resound in memory like parables, The Little School is proof of the resilience of the human spirit and the healing powers of art.

The Little School has appeared on the London Times best-seller list and was a Pushcart Foundation Writer's Choice Selection. The NEA selected The Little School for exhibition at the Buenos Aires and Frankfurt Book Fairs, and the Association of Jewish Publishers selected the book for exhibition at the Moscow International Bookfair. The second edition features a revised introduction by the author and an introduction by Julia Alvarez.

    " Compelling story, but written poorly. Constant tense switching, switching the main characters in each chapter so that you have no idea which one you're following, and shifts from the first person to the third person frequently. "

    " Was the most amazing book. Very easy to read. But it is a very sad a scary book, so don't think it is an uplifting type of book. I guess you can look at it this way the author was one of many that "disappeared" in the Dirty War. "
