Welcome to The Thing, where J.A. Rock and I give away a copy of Mark Cooper versus America (available January 28) to one astute reader who keeps abreast of all the Prescott College related stuff we post on our blogs and answers a tricky question on January 24. You can find details here. We'll be posting texts between the characters, excerpts from Prescott's student newspaper, characters' homework assignments and more!
Yesterday on our blogs we introduced met Mark and Deacon, our two main characters. Mark: Australian, less-than-fond of small town Pennsylvania, and way more concerned with sex than academics. Deacon: studious, responsible, and rather fond of angry bunny Mark.
J.A. and I have NSA'd our way into Mark and Deacon's private text conversations, and this is what we've found. In the first one, Deacon wants Mark to sneak into his fraternity house -- Phi Sigma -- without getting spotted by the rival fraternity next door -- Alpha Delta, where Mark is a pledge.
And here Mark sends Deacon a heartfelt text, after being sent on a pledge retreat in the woods and drinking a few too many beers.
You guys, check out J.A. Rock's blog for more texts and fun stuff, and remember to check back here between now and the 24th, since we'll be introducing more characters from Mark Cooper versus America.
