Educational settings as place and/or subject in fiction form the theme of this catalogue of titles and authors. Organized alphabetically by the author's last name, the information is further divided by general school environments and those where the university, specifically, is the primary focal point. The list spans centuries and geographical boundaries, featuring Charlotte Brontë, Agatha Christie and Honore de Balzac as well as contemporary writers Curtis Sittenfeld, Joyce Carol Oates, and Donna Tartt. For those interested in learning more about the school/university in literature, references are included that provide a more academic study of the subgenre.
