A Best Book of the Year NPR and Boston Globe Finally a novel that puts the pissed back into epistolary Jason Fitger is a beleaguered professor of creative writing and literature at Payne University a small and not very distinguished liberal arts college in the midwest His department is facing draconian cuts and squalid quarters while one floor above them the Economics Department is getting lavishly remodeled offices His once promising writing career is in the doldrums as is his romantic life in part as the result of his unwise use of his private affairs for his novels His star he thinks student can t catch a break with his brilliant he thinks work Accountant in a Bordello based on Melville s Bartleby In short his life is a tale of woe and the vehicle this droll and inventive novel uses to tell that tale is a series of hilarious letters of recommendation that Fitger is endlessly called upon by his students and colleagues to produce each one of which is a small masterpiece of high dudgeon low spirits and passive aggressive strategies We recommend Dear Committee Members to you in the strongest possible terms
