How I Paid for College: A Novel of Sex, Theft, Friendship & Musical Theater.

How I paid for College: A Novel of Sex, Theft, Friendship & Musical Theater * Marc Acito * Broadway * $19.95

There's a lot of buzz about this out-there farce by out syndicated humorist Acito, and why not? It's funny enough to make you laugh even when no one's around to hear. The plot goes thus: Edward Zanni, a New Jersey teen consumed with the desire to study acting at Juilliard, learns to his horror that (a) his dad won't pay, and (b) thanks to said dad, he's too well-off to qualify for financial aid. Edward sets out to steal the tuition from his father, aided and abetted by a brace of wacky friends who'll strike a reminiscent chord in anybody who ever loved (and hated) high-school drama club.
