A Kirkus Reviews Best Book in Translation of 2019

Zs fia Ban's Night School: A Reader for Adults uses a textbook format to build an encyclopedia of life--subject by subject, from self-help to geography to chemistry to French. With subtle irony, Ban's collection of "lectures" guides readers through the importance and uses of the power of Nohoo (or "know-how"), tells of the travels of young Flaubert to Egypt with his friend Maxime, and includes a missive from Laika the dog minutes before being blasted off into space, never to be seen again. A wildly clever book that makes our all-too-familiar world appear simultaneously foreign and untamed, and brings together lust, taboos, and the absurd in order to teach us the art of living.
