John Campion is the kind of teacher that any child would want for their class.
He’s also the kind of teacher that lots of mothers want to have. And some of them do.
His impulsive nature, dedication to his pupils and his love of women lead him into a chain of events that would cause even the most consummate professional to unravel.
“All on his own, Nigel Bird has created a new sub-genre: Teacher Noir. In Loco Parentis delves into the darkness of the everyday through the eyes of painfully human and delightfully contradictory characters. This is vulnerable, brave fiction.
Bird is a noir poet who crafts characters you will love, hate, and become addicted to–all at the same time. Be prepared: In Loco Parentis is a rare and devastating book.”
– Chris Rhatigan (Watch You Drown, All Due Respect, Death By Killing, Pulp Ink)
