Up the Down Staircase

By Bel Kaufman
Narrated by Barbara Rosenblat / 8 hours 56 minutes

Bel Kaufman’s Up the Down Staircase is one of thebest-loved novels of our time. It has been translated into sixteen languages,made into a prizewinning motion picture, and staged as a play at high schoolsall over the United States; its very title has become part of the Americanidiom.

Never before has a novel so compellingly laid bare the innerworkings of a metropolitan high school. Up the Down Staircase is thefunny and touching story of a committed, idealistic teacher whose clash withschool bureaucracy is a timeless lesson for students, teachers, parents—anyoneconcerned about public education. Bel Kaufman lets her characters speak forthemselves through memos, letters, directives from the principal, comments bystudents, notes between teachers, and papers from desk drawers and wastebaskets,evoking a vivid picture of teachers fighting the good fight against all thatstands in the way of good teaching.
