mostly light, but fun - a view of the other side of academia

An epistolary novel about a disgruntled faculty member, Jason/Jay Fitger, who is writing an endless stream of Letters of Recommendation for students and faculty. It is funny in some cases, and in others, it is a venting of frustrations - with the faculty, with the office space, with people not responding, with former flames.
It is a quick read. Just OK in my opinion.

Funny enough but not as funny a novel of academia as "Nobody's Fool".
