Description
Charlie Banks is a 16-year old who is a socially responsible upper west-sider. Charlie witnesses charismatic blue collar sociopath 18-year old Mick Leary brutally beat two unwitting suburban jocks at a high school party. Mick is a west village neighborhood buddy of Charlie's best friend. Soon, Charlie's conscience gets the better of him. Telling only his parents, he reports Mick to the police. Several years later, Charlie is in college and Mick visits the campus for a weekend. The two begin a game of cat and mouse. Nice one moment, and threatening the next, Mick keeps Charlie guessing. But Mick stays longer and begins a strange course of assimilation, donning borrowed cashmere and begins reading Charlie's books and auditing his classes. Soon Charlie begins to wonder if the intellectual caress of higher education can redeem even someone seemingly as far gone as Mick.
