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.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anne | 12/26/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Audrey | 12/20/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 12/16/2013

    " A harrowing read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele Abrams Lehn | 12/13/2013

    " Powerful and poetic. A quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alicia | 9/27/2013

    " It looked so good, but it was disappointing. I didn't particularly like the writing style, and I didn't think that the character development was as good as it could have been. It had potential, but just never drew me in. However, it is a sad part of history that I never knew about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 9/16/2013

    " A very inspiring story about a women's survival in Argentina. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamara | 8/16/2013

    " very quick read, very profound topic. The change in point of view didn't distract me as it did some others, for I didn't think the point was so much who things were happening to, but rather that they happened at all. I recommend it for anyone interested in Latin America. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justin Hall | 8/11/2013

    " Interesting parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larissa | 7/27/2013

    " Short but heartbreakingly sad reminder of the costs of torture - to its victims, to the people who carry it out, to the government that sponsors it, and to the society that allows it to take place. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 2/23/2013

    " A heartbreaking account of the author's experiences as a "disappeared" person in Argentina - very short, powerful and poetic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 2/21/2013

    " Vignettes about the missing in Argentina, many teenagers who'd been reported killed in confrontations with police while being outright murdered. The final tally of the author's cell mates is devastating. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tawny | 11/30/2012

    " A requirement for my English class but I enjoyed the book and read it a day. The paragraphs are quick and engaging. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica | 11/3/2012

    " The author wrote about her experiences as a "disappeared" person under the Argentinian dictatorship. It's an amazing story written in both English and Spanish about survival and freedom. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gretchen Swain | 6/29/2012

    " I was doing research for a Spanish paper. This book looked so interesting and good that I sat down and read it at the library. It took me around an hour. It was a quick read and very informative. I recommend people go to the library and learn a little about Argentina's history. "
