About this title


Living a solitary life and scarred by a childhood trauma, Gregory Lynn discovers a box of his grade school reports and relives several painful experiences from his youth


Gregory Lynn must have had a very bad childhood because, when he uncovers his old school papers from his mother's attic after her death, he sets about to commit some "acts of revision" on his former teachers. Yet there is more to this novel than a story of revenge. It is a beguiling tale told through a series of interviews with Gregory, who mixes fact with fiction and whose reality is often more distorted than his fantasy. In this regard, the book becomes both a chilling thriller and a twisted look at the nature of recorded narrative, a unique combination that results in an intriguing adventure.
