At a boarding school in New Hampshire, Ben joins the honor society led by Pierre LaVerdere, a brilliant yet perverse teacher who instructs his students not only about how to reason, but how to lie. As the years go by, LaVerdere's instruction lingers in his students' lives as they seek some sense of purpose or meaning. When Ben feels the pace of his life accelerating and views his intimate relationships as less and less fulfilling, there seems to be a subtext he's not able to access. After Ben moves to upstate New York for respite from his anxieties, LaVerdere's reappearance in his life disturbs his equilibrium, and in this novel by the author of The State We're In, everything he once thought he knew about his teacher—and himself—is called into question.
