"You are going to be trained to be the wives of rich and powerful men!"

Ten girls, all of them young and beautiful, listened with rapt attention as their instructress, Miss Durrell, told them in detail what they could expect at Mr Alexopolous' strange school - they were to be disciplined in the art of love! But why? Alexander Trocchi provides the extraordinary answers in School for Wives, his most unique and original book yet.

About the author (2012)

Alexander Trocchi was born on the 30th July 1925 in Glasgow to a Scottish mother and Italian father. On graduating from the University of Glasgow in the early 1950s, he obtained a travelling grant that allowed him to relocate to continental Europe.

He first lived in Paris and edited the literary magazine Merlin, which published Henry Miller, Samuel Beckett, Christopher Logue, and Pablo Neruda. It was in Paris that he acquired a lifelong heroin addiction, which continued after moving to America and settling in New York.

In the 1960s Trocchi lived in Kensington, London where he later died of pneumonia in 1984.
