"In loco parentis. No matter what anyone else tells you, take it from me, that's Latin for 'Your parents have to be nuts to send you to a New England boarding school.' Mine are; they did; here I sit." So begins the narrative of Harry Taft, a junior at a worn-out, Massachusetts prep school. After a series of misadventures at school, Harry hops on a bus for Monterey, California, hoping for a fresh start. Instead, the hits keep coming as Harry once again finds himself stumbling through the bizarre and comic events that make up his life. Raw, hilarious, tender, and, at times, all of the above simultaneously, Let Me Explain is a wild addition to the long list of American coming of age novels.
