Ivy League & Private School Preoccupations
I have a strange fascination with novels set in Ivy League universities or other private schools. Here's a list of those I've both encountered and enjoyed.

Patricia Thanks for your great list of books about the Ivy League and prep schools. I thought I was the only one out there (not really). I too am fascinated with books set in private schools or Ivy League colleges. I printed out the list. Some books I have already read, some are unfamiliar to me.

I recently finished All Souls by Christine Schutt. The setting is a private girls' school in New York. I've read One L by Scott Turow and Ivy Briefs by Martha Kimes, which are nonfiction books about Ivy League law schools.

Stephanie Glad I'm not the only one--and please feel free to add those books to the list!
