Books: My So-Called Prep School Life
Richard Kramer, who wrote My So Called Life and thirtysomething, has a new book out called These Things Happen and it's about a high school sophomore.
According to the Salon review here, it's "the story of Wesley Bowman, a thoroughly fascinating and preternaturally — but never preciously — intelligent New York kid whose beating at the hands of gay-bashing bullies in the basement of his schmancy Manhattan prep school (the sort of place where “these things” are not supposed to “happen”) at once brings his family together and pushes them apart in unexpected ways."
Sounds good, no? Sure, you can send it to me as a holiday gift. That'd be very kind of you.
