Under the Rose free pdf "I hereby confess: We aren't like other college students. 1. Stragglers " It was shopping period at Eli University, and lest you think this is one of those books about fashion, let me enlighten you. The students at Eli were not shopping for Prada, but for Proust- they weren't hunting for good bargains, but rather, for gut classes- and they would happily surrender Fendi at forty percent off to secure a Fractals section that wasn't all the way up on Science Hill. As a senior, I found this shopping period especially poignant. It was my penultimate chance to discover the hidden gem seminar, the one I'd look back on in the cold, post-Eli future as being one of those bright college days the song* speaks of. My last chance, in many cases, to take the famous lectures given by the college's most notorious luminaries. "What? You didn't take Herbert Branch's Shakespeare class?" future employers will say with incredulity. "Why, Amy Haskel, what were you doing there at Eli?" And I will not be able to tell them, because I swore an oath never to reveal the truth: that while other Literature majors were shopping the Branch class, I was crouching in the shadows on a cold stone floor, garbed in a long black hooded robe and a skull-shaped mask, rehearsing an esoteric initiation ritual that required me to lie in wait for an innocent classmate to wander by so I could leap out, pelt his face with phosphorescent dust, and yell "Boo." As if I'd admit to something like that anyway. "Hey, Lil' Demon " I called down the stairs. "I sort of wanted to shop a seminar this afternoon, so can we non-speaking parts adjourn for the day?" Keyser Soze, a.k.a. Joshua Silver, popped up frombehind a tower of human remains. "The Branch class? I wanted to take that, too." Figures. Branch was a brand-name professor at Eli, and it would suit Josh's political aspirations to add the scholar's reputation to his C.V. Lil' Demon, currently levitating over a pool of blood, raised one perfectly plucked eyebrow and blew a strand of chestnut brown hair (she'd had it dyed over the summer) out of her eyes. "I should have gone union," she said with a sniff. "You people just don't understand show business." (By the way, that thing in Us Weekly about Lil' Demon over the Fourth of July weekend is categorically untrue. Odile Dumas wasn't "servicing" any ex-boy-band members in Tijuana- she was with me and the other Diggers at a patriarch's pool party on Fire Island. And, say what you will about the starlet, she has better taste than to get down with a bunch of scrawny tenors. If that were her style, we had more than enough singing groups right here on campus.) Thorndike, poised below her and wielding a wicked-looking pitchfork, tapped Lil' Demon on her Pilates-honed and designer jeans-encrusted behind. "Can't let the Teamsters in the tomb," she reminded her. Demetria "Thorndike" Robinson was our resident power-to-the-people expert, so she'd know. "But I'm with them anyway," she continued. "There's this Racial Strata of the 21st Century symposium I wanted to hit at three."
