Fox 5 NY on How ‘Around Harvard Square’ Prophesied a Scandal

There’s been a lot of coverage of the college admissions scandal, and my new novel “Around Harvard Square” has been drawing attention for depicting a similar (fictional) cheating scandal. Fox 5 NY did a segment on my book, and also posted a story online. In the article, Fox 5 NY reporter Mike Sacks writes “In his new novel, ‘Around Harvard Square,’ Farley writes about a scandal strikingly similar to how [California-based admissions consultant Rick] Singer helped parents and coaches allegedly exploit athletic programs of schools like Yale, Georgetown, and USC.” You can read the full Fox 5 NY story.
