prep school dissected Feb 11, 2003
Before Holden Caulfield went AWOL from Pencey, Clint Trowbridge, age 12, then known as "Clintie", was sent off to fend for himself at Groton. This is an excellent remembrance of the 40's at one of the quintessential Northeastern prep schools. You can't help but think of A Separate Peace while reading this. The book is fascinating because of it's detail and the picture it paints of the spartan yet priviliged life the boys at Groton led. It has hysterically funny scenes juuxtaposed with insights into terrible things that were happening in the world. The author and his best friend's support of F.D.R. in opposition to the majority of the students is really fun to read today. I went to an all girls school in the late 50's to early 60's and much of the school ambience and recollections resonated strongly despite the gender and age difference.
