Bertram Cope's Year

by Henry Blake Fuller

In the social scene known as 'cap and town' in fictional Churchton, Illinois (read 'Evanston and Northwestern University') comes young instructor Bertram Cope. Blond, blue-eyed, charming and book-learned, with a patina of conversational sophistication; he is, however, not quite genuine. Impressed by wealth and well-appointed houses, Cope is too careful and self-conscious - and what he doesn't realize is that he is observed and judged as often as he observes and judges.
