Dear Committee Members by Julie Schumacher
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Epistolary. Written completely in letters, mostly LOR's, letter of recommendation.
The English department is under attack, literally crumbling after funding cutbacks not to mention a construction crew refurbishing the Economic department’s floor and filling the air with dust, and probably asbestos, to be breathed in by those poor saps unable to scamper off to other environs.
Meanwhile a beleaguered and aging English professor continues to write out letters of recommendation to current and former students looking to parlay their degree into work at the local paintball arena or as unpaid interns.
It’s wry look at the state of liberal arts education, writers workshops and some inside baseball about the publishing industry. Professor Fitger is an old school grump with a love for the written word but no patience for fools, himself included. A fun diversionary read.
