In Maksik's stylish prose, Paris is sensual, dazzling, and dangerously seductive. It serves as a fitting backdrop for a dramatic tale about the tension between desire and action, and about the complex relationship that exists between our public and private selves.

Who is the teacher and who are the students?
Would you consider the audio edition of You Deserve Nothing to be better than the print version?
No. The audio version is well done but the print version, without hearing multiple voices, allows the reader to imaging the faces of the characters without outside influence.
What did you like best about this story?
The examination of the relationships between teachers and students is well portrayed. The teacher seeks to stimulate learning but can the teacher transcend his/her own flawed self in order to expand the horizon of students?
Which scene was your favorite?
The confrontation at the end between the principal, trustee, and the protagonist.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The protagonist's trip to Greece was the key to understanding his loneliness and isolation even though his outward life was devoted to social interactions.
Any additional comments?
This is a great study in the internal contradictions we all face between our ideals and our reality.
