Overview

Hermes Hawthorne is fifteen and lives in Grassy Knoll. Caught spray-painting graffiti on the wall of a house in Green Meadows, a neighboring and only slightly more affluent subdivision, he is remanded to the treatment of a psychiatrist who diagnoses him with ADHD and prescribes Ritalin therapy. Such a punishment, however, does not console Frank Brickman, the angry homeowner whose house Hermes has defaced. Frank conspires to build a wall to separate the two subdivisions, but how high must a wall rise to ensure the separation of barely distinguishable classes in a modern-day American suburb?
