Description

The arrival of rebellious Will Savage at his New England prep school in the mid-sixties was watched in awed fascination by Patrick, his Irish-Catholic roommate with aspirations to all that the Ivy League and convention had to offer. Theirs is an unusual friendship that unfolds across the decades, through Will's defiant marriage to a beautiful black woman, and Patrick's studied course of upward mobility, in an abiding portrait of male intimacy that is funny, intimate and unforgettable.
