"Longlisted for the 2016 Man Booker Prize. David is the small boy who is always asking questions. Simon and Ines take care of him in their new country. He is learning the language; he has begun to make friends. He has the big dog Bolivar to watch over him. But he'll be seven soon. He should be at school. And so David is enrolled in the Academy of Dance in Estrella. It's here, in his new golden dancing slippers, that he learns how to call down the numbers from the sky. But it's here too that he will make troubling discoveries about what grown-ups are capable of. The Schooldays of Jesus, the startling sequel to J.M. Coetzee's widely praised The Childhood of Jesus, will beguile its readers. With the mysterious simplicity of a fable, it tells a story that raises the most direct questions about life itself."
