Two, Two, Lily-white Boys
A NovelBook - 2012
Two, Two, Lily-White Boys follows the fortunes of two 14-year-old Scouts from Ermine Falls?Larry Carstairs, the narrator, and Andy Dellums, Larry?s schoolmate and friend?over the course of six days at Camp Greavy, a Boy Scout camp not far from Traverse City, Michigan. The story?s catalyst and Andy?s tormentor is Russell ?Curly? Norrys, a worldly, charismatic 17-year-old, a homophobe who suspects that Andy is a homosexual. Mercurial, protean, possibly sociopathic, Curly engineers conflicts that accelerate as the days wear on, eventually culminating in tragedy. Passive-aggressive Larry, moved to action at last, must choose between self-preservation and justice.
