A School for Fools (Школа для дураков) is a novel written by Sasha Sokolov in the 1960s. "A School for Fools" was first circulated via 'samizdat,' or self-publication through underground connections. However, the novel was formally published in 1976 in U.S. (tamizdat). Школа для дураков is often classified as a work of phantasmagoric modernism. Vladimir Nabokov called it "an enchanting, tragic, and touching work."
