A novel in the form of recommendation letters? Sounds like a literary stunt but
Schumacher absolutely nails it. While maintaining the book’s formal conceit, she
perfectly blends satire and genuine human emotion, offering a hilarious commentary on
modern academia through one professor’s tired pen and fading sanity. If you’ve ever
needed a letter of recommendation or written one, you will laugh and you will cry. I
unreservedly recommend (!) Ms. Schumacher for your reading pleasure.
