Summary
The Virgins is the story of Aviva and Seung's descent into confusion and shame, as re-imagined in richly detailed episodes by their classmate Bruce, a once-embittered voyeur turned repentant narrator. With unflinching honesty and breathtaking prose, Pamela Erens brings a fresh voice to the tradition of the great boarding school novel
Summary
Two students at a private boarding school, Aviva, who seeks liberation from the memory of an unhappy childhood, and Seung, who wants to rebel from demanding parents, enter into an intense relationship which intrigues everyone around them
