Keen to reinvent himself in the image of his well-to-do classmates, the narrator tries to hide his background from them. Under the pressured atmosphere imposed by the demands of privilege - to maintain honor at all costs, to avoid embarrassment or exposure,- the narrator discovers the seductions of the Literary the calling card by which the school defines itself. Besides publishing this literary magazine, which galvanizes competition among the boys, the school has invited an impressive roster of visiting writers: Robert Frost, Ayn Rand, and finally Ernest Hemingway. To win Hemingway's praise, any young writer worth his salt would do almost anything. Anything at all.
