In 1949, Lloyd Wilkinson Petrie has returned as a Trustee to live in the long-defunct boarding school that he had attended as a child. There he is preparing a memoir.

From one of our greatest writers, this is a tale that captures the shifting meanings of the past - one that displays her delight in Jamesian irony and the mythical flavor of a Kafka parable, woven into her own distinct voice.
