OLD SCHOOL

by | Read by Dan Cashman

Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

A novel written as memoir, this coming-of-age story is set in an exclusive and very literary New England prep school. The narrator is a scholarship boy bent on joining the ranks of the “great writers.” Three such will be visiting the school during his final year--Robert Frost, Ayn Rand, and, dream of dreams, Ernest Hemingway. A student writing contest precedes each visit, with the guest choosing one submission whose student author receives a private meeting with the guest. The results are dead serious and very funny. Dan Cashman gives a sensitive reading that captures the essential nature of the characters, both students and masters. His portrayals of the aging and humane Frost and the impossibly confident and self-centered Rand are highlights not to be missed. Concerning Hemingway--you’ll have to hear that for yourself.
