Sweet Days of Discipline – by Fleur Jaeggy

There’s writing that you just couldn’t get into. And there’s writing that hooked you the moment you started reading the first lines.

I started Sweet Days of Discipline and was quickly entranced with Jaeggy’s lyrical writing. She created a poignant, suspenseful and dreamlike atmosphere that made your mind wander and wonder. You would think that something dark or bad must happen soon to the girls at the boarding school in the Appenzel (Switzerland).

This perfectly beautiful book was translated from the Italian by Tim Parks.
