The French novel that inspired The Class, one of last year's most acclaimed films, is coming out in English. Francois Begaudeau's book, which literally translates to Between the Walls but will be titled The Class, is a fictionalised account of the author's time as a high school teacher in France.

Begadeau stars as himself in the film, directed by Laurent Cantet, winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes and a strong candidate among foreign releases for an Academy Award nomination. Seven Stories Press will publish the book in the United States in April.
