Summary
  • "A debut novel about an adolescent boy's spiritual and sexual crisis at a 1926 British boarding school"--
  • At St. Stephen's Academy, the students are on the verge of revolt. While the younger boys plot an insurrection, the older ones are preoccupied with sneaking out-of-bounds, thrashing each other, tearing each other's clothes off-- or some combination of the three. Morgan Wilberforce, for one, can't take it any longer. When an accident at the boarding school leaves him with more suffering than he could have fathomed, he finds himself alone and adrift. And the workaday charms of cricket practice, Victorian pornography, canings from classmates, and fumbling with the pub-keeper's daughter can only do so much to mend a broken body and a restless heart
