it was amazing
Read from October 24 to November 21, 2011

Captivating. Perfectly pitched. depicts and details the life, friendships, competitions, characters, and feeling of any number of new England prep schools, including my own. His passages brings back incredible depth of memories of the small moments of boarding school and the angst around identity and living up to big ideas. Wolff holds us skillfully throughout the dawning maturity and angst of the protagonist and his peer set. Beautifully written.
