When Mungo Lockhart begins his first year at Oxford, he finds that his roommate is Ian Cardower, member of an aristocratic, if not wealthy, Scottish family, whose name, while vaguely familiar to Mungo, appears shrouded in some kind of mystery. Mungo, too, is Scottish, but he is the product of a simpler, more austere childhood, having been orphaned and then raised and mostly educated by an aunt. Mungo sees Ian as the embodiment of the perfect Oxford student, popular, secure, superior, experienced with women, everything Mungo isn't.
