Chocolat author Joanne Harris' novel is set at St. Oswald's, an aristocratic British boys' school hovering on the edge of extinction, unfolding through the alternating narration of two teachers. Harris combines the conventions of the academic novel, its vicious politicking and rich dynamics, with the taut suspense of a thriller.
