- "Kurt Gerber embarks enthusiastically on his last year at school, determined to focus on that all-important final exam. He soon finds, however, he is constantly at odds with his sadistic teacher, Professor Kupfer, known to the students as 'Lord God Kupfer.' Inspired by the real-life suicides of ten school peers during one week in 1929, Young Gerber is a timeless tale of classroom angst"--Amazon.com.
