Newman was never a popular kid in school. He was bookish, bad at sports and, by the tenth grade, extremely asocial.

[some exposition later]

One day, in the gym locker room, he tripped over the calves of a skinny, dark-haired boy. "s-sorry," apologized Newman. He tried to turn away without looking the boy in the eyes, but before he could the boy said something to him.

"Hey, that book you're reading... is that Tropic of Cancer?"

"no, I mean, yeah - I mean, no," Newman stammered, "it's... Tropic of Capricorn"
