IF YOU LOVED DEAR COMMITTEE MEMBERS…: The book continues the saga of Jason Fitger and does not disappoint. Dear Committee Members has sold over 70,000 copies to date.
STRONG COMPS: An academic comedy of pitched battles waged for small stakes that will appeal to readers of Jane Smiley’s Moo, Richard Russo’s Straight Man, and David Lodge’s Small World.
COULDN’T BE MORE CURRENT: From trigger warnings to safe spaces to rampant political correctness and identity politics, it’s all grist for Julie Schumacher’s comic mill.
FIRST WOMAN TO WIN THE JAMES THURBER PRIZE: There is no better antidote to the constant drumbeat of depressing than humor, and Schumacher is nothing if not hilarious.
“Hilarious…. Schumacher’s satisfying and fun novel is bolstered by its memorable campus setting and its quirky cast.”—Publishers Weekly
“A straight narrative delivered with acrid wit…. Fitger is delightfully acerbic and self-destructive in these pages…. Anyone who’s taught will recognize these characters, tightly bound in their arcane knowledge and rancid grievances…. A wry commentary on the plight of the arts in our mercantile era…. Enrollment is now open. Don’t skip this class.”—Ron Charles, The Washington Post
