More than just a riveting school story spoof, this humorous novel relates the story of the only girl in a boys 1930s' boarding school. The effects of her one term's presence makes men out of boys and boys out of men. Her female commonsense and intuition brings St Chauvin's the level of unsettling psychoanalysis that it needs to sort itself out. Mainly for a sophisticated readership, Josephine could be developed to the status of a cult if placed in the right hands. The 1930s datedness only adds to the quirky comic effect and is efficiently explained by author intrusion into the text.
