Old School; Tobias Wolf

Set in an elite boarding school in the early 1960’s a student deals with being an outsider among the privileged boys in the school culminating in a horribly bad decision he makes at the very end of his tenure.  Interesting literary short novel with fictional visits to the school from Robert Frost and Ayn Rand – who was a complete bitch – great.  Powerful ending with a switch in perspective from the ex-Dean of the school

PJH rating: ****
