There's a strange form of communication we're all familiar with, for better or for worse. It's all about us, but we rarely get to read it.
It's the letter of recommendation.
A new novel by Julie Schumacher is filled with these letters, and nothing but. It's appropriately called Dear Committee Members.
All the letters come from the desk of our curmudgeonly narrator, creative writing professor Jason T. Fitger — who's got no problem telling it like it is when it comes to his students' qualifications, or their job prospects in the current economy.
