Join Sam Chauncey, mentor to the Yale squash team, in a conversation with Alexander Tilney about his first novel The Expectations.

Alexander Tilney, who received a BA from Yale University and an MFA from Warren Wilson College, has appeared in the Southwest Review, Gelf Magazine, and the Journal of The Office for Creative Research.

About The Expectations:
St. James is an exclusive New England boarding school known for grooming generations of leaders. Ben Weeks is a true insider -- his ancestors helped found St. James, his older brother taught him all the slang, and he's just won a national championship in squash.

But after fourteen long years of waiting, Ben arrives at school only to find that the reality of St. James doesn't quite match up with his imaginings. At the same time, his new roommate, Ahmed Al-Khaled, the son of a fabulously wealthy Emirati sheik, can't navigate the unspoken rules of New England blue bloods. Even as Ben and Ahmed struggle to prove themselves in the place they have revered for so long, each of them must face losing it forever.
