The Perks of Being a Wallflower

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

  

by Stephen Chbosky

The Perks of Being a Wallflower Part 4, Chapter 7 Summary

How It All Goes Down

May 27, 1992

  • Charlie tells us that reading about Ayn Rand made him want to write a story.
  • So he writes one sentence: "Ian MacArthur is a wonderful sweet fellow who wears glasses and peers out of them with delight" (4.7.3).
  • Hooked? Want to read more? Too bad. That's the only line Charlie writes.
  • He spends the rest of the letter thinking about his own graduation… which, in case you (or he) didn't realize, is over three years away.
