Every student has a story…
But you won’t find it here.
Dark, profane, and absurd, this comedy follows the journey of a young teacher on a misguided adventure to resurrect dead dreams. After being let go from his first school, the nameless narrator finds himself at a tough urban high school ready to quit. He decides that the only way to rekindle his passion for teaching is through his favorite novel. It’s a decision that leads him on an unsuspecting journey where he discovers that teaching a book about monsters means dealing with his own first.
The story exposes the importance of friendship and the truth behind what it means to be a teacher. Based on real events, the novel parallels Mary Shelley’s 1818 classic, Frankenstein, and shows that 200 years later, humanity still struggles to identify the real monsters.
It’s a must-read for aspiring educators, teachers, and those struggling with adulting.

Viktor James is a former high school English teacher turned satirist. Born on Andrew’s Air Force Base, Maryland, he’s the child of a military family and has spent most of his life on the move. The nomadic life taught him how to fit in fast while still cherishing the outsider’s perspective. Inspired to help others, he taught at an inner-city school while waiting tables for four years before leaving to become a writer.
He holds a Master’s in English from UCL that he earned as an excuse to live in London for a year. Teaching Frankenstein: A Cautionary Tale is his first novel.
