Kickin' It Old School, Literally


Book cover used courtesy of Random House.

Old School tells the story of a teenage boy struggling to discover his true, honest self. The nameless narrator craves friendship and acceptance as he seeks to find his place among his classmates. In this scene, we hear from the author himself, Tobias Wolff, along with writers Lorrie Moore and Curtis Sittenfeld. The music is from the riveting Atonement soundtrack.
