-----------------------------------

Determined to fit in at his prestigious New England public school, the narrator has learned to mimic the bearing and manners of his adoptive tribe while concealing as much as possible about himself. His final year, however, unravels everything he's achieved, and steers his destiny in directions no one could have predicted. The boys like to emphasise their democratic ideals, the only acknowledged snobbery is literary snobbery. The school's mystique is rooted in Literature, and for many boys this becomes an obsession, editing the Review and competing for the attention of visiting writers whose fame helps to perpetuate the tradition. Once a term, a famous writer visits and a contest takes place. The boys have to submit a piece of writing and the winner receives a private audience with the visitor. But then it is announced that Hemingway, the boys' hero, is coming to the school. the competition intensifies, and the morals the school and the boys pride themselves on, honour, loyalty and friendship, are crumbling under the strain. Only time will tell who will win and what it will cost them.
