How I Paid for College, a novel of sex, theft, friendship and musical theater by Marc Acito
"How I Paid for College, a novel of sex, theft, friendship and musical theater" by Marc Acito. My novel "Lost Lake" was recently a finalist for an Oregon Book Award but I knew I had no chance to win as soon as I saw that Marc Acito was one of the other finalists. I read "How I Paid for College" this summer and had been raving about it ever since. It is the hilarious story of Edward Zanni, a gay high school junior whose only wish in life is to go to Julliard so he can be an actor. Unfortunately, his father is only willing to pay for college if Edward goes to business school. Edward enlists his high school friends to help him and the book details their hysterically funny schemes to get Edward his tuition.
