Adventures of Michael MacInnes, The
A poet, a maverick, “the wandering outlaw of his own dark mind” – Michael MacInnes, an orphan attending a prestigious boys’ school in 1924, doesn’t fit into his surroundings. Lucky for him, neither does his new roommate, Roger Legrande. Physics is Roger’s passion. But with expulsions from two other prep schools already under his belt, a secret that dare not speak its name, and a roommate like Michael MacInnes, he, too, quickly finds himself on the wrong side of authority – whether that means publishing an underground literary magazine, performing an aerial rescue mission at a local girls’ school, or taking on the brutish school bootlegger. This debut novel spins an uproarious yarn about a pair of Prohibition-era rebels who aren’t afraid to stand up against prohibitions in general.
