Overview
-

Paul Matthews, in his memoir of his five years at South Kent School, paints a picture of the child he was and the man he has become. Subjecting himself to intense scrutiny, Matthews captures his struggle to simultaneously live up to expectations and to rebel against them in an account that evokes both nostalgia and relief that the past is past.
