9780704371439: Private Privilege

Novel. England in the mid 1970's and Samuel Alexander is reluctantly starting at his father's old public school, one of the finest in England. Everything, on the surface seems no different in this harsh, lonely yet surprisingly privileged environment. As they have for generations new boys have to serve their seniors--part of the ancient "fag" system. Herded and bullied by megalomaniac prefects in flamboyant waistcoats, they pass along desolate corridors to their Latin, Math or History lessons with imperious school masters, able to threaten a variety of savage punishments. But the certainty of this elitist, enclosed world, which Samuel's father once sang of in the school anthem, is changing. The walls are being pulled down and seismic new forces are at work. The decadent lure of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll will plunge Samuel and his friends into a searing confrontation with authority and question the very foundations of a once assured ruling class.
