Ms Nan A TaleseDoubleday Publishing1745 BroadwayNew York NY 10019Dear Ms TaleseI saw online that you were the contact person for Doubleday Publishing and that manuscripts must be submitted by agents because you do not accept unsolicited manuscriptsWell relax Nan that isn t why I am contacting you No I have several other reasons I would like to tell you about I became aware of the book Dear Committee Members when several of my respected friends gave it good reviews on Goodreads I also liked the opening line that you all used in your description of the book Finally a novel that puts the pissed back into epistolary Very clever It is a clever book Epistolary novels are tricky propositions and Julie Schumacher pulled it off She was able to do that because it is obvious that she is intimately acuainted with the academic world that she describes in the epistles that her protagonist a professor of creative writing and literature writes to well to everybody but especially to the many administrators who by the way outnumber the full time classroom teaching professors at his university That places his institution smack dab in the mainstream and I could feel his pain Some of the epistles made me laugh out loud and some of them made me cuss like a sailor because they were so on target I spent many years as the chair of my department in the small college where I taught I took the job for the same reason that people in Schumacher s book did because nobody else would take the job and somebody had to It was a thankless job and I accomplished little but somebody had to do it I also took on the distinguished sounding job of President of the Faculty Forum because nobody else would take the job and somebody had to It was a thankless job and I accomplished little but somebody had to do it But here is the real reason I am contacting you I purchased a first edition used but nevertheless first edition hard cover copy of the book I was surprised when I noticed on Goodreads that that particular edition was not listed So I created one though the generic copy that resulted looks nothing like the canary yellow cover that my copy sports When I reached page seven in my reading I discovered why the first edition did not appear on Goodreads There is no page seven There also is no page eight or nine or ten They were not torn out It is obvious that they were never there in the first place Is this what putting pissed back into epistolary means If so it worked I m not reuesting a refund because I really enjoyed the book In fact it is my favorite book of the year But I do think that I am owed something By my calculations there are at least two maybe three epistles missing from my copy I am asking that you please do one of two things 1 send me the missing epistles in an email or 2 copy them and send them via USPSI trust that since you are not being swamped with unsolicited manuscripts that you will be able to find the time to do this for meI await your reply or the missing epistlesSincerelyHoward

Dear Committee Members

Summary Dear Committee Members Dear Committee Members Free download ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free S 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 term. This is a very funny and also a very smart look at the contemporary world of academia as seen through the endless numbers of letters of recommendation written by Jason T Fitger a professor of Creative Writing and English at the fictional Payne University which is located somewhere in the Midwest Like so many other disciplines in the Humanities Fitger s English department appears to be under siege Its budget has been slashed full time tenured faculty are being forced out in favor of part time non tenured wage slaves the graduate program is in decline the physical facilities are falling apart and the administration apparently couldn t care less To add insult to injury a sociologist a sociologist has just been installed as head of the English department and while the department can t even afford a working copy machine the university is spending a fortune to renovate the floors above the English department creating veritable Taj Mahal in which to house the damned Economics departmentPoor Fitger s personal life is about as troubled as his professional life He s divorced his once promising writing career has tanked and like an academic Rodney Dangerfield he seems to get no respect from anyone But the guy writes brilliant letters of recommendation the kind that many professors would love to write if only they had the wits and the guts to do so Through the letters he pours out his commentary on the state of affairs academic and personal and those who have spent any time at all laboring in the academic vineyards will sadly nod their heads in agreement that is when they re not laughing out loudJulie Schumacher has conceived of a great idea for a novel and has carried it off very well This is perhaps the best novel set in academia since Richard Russo s brilliant Straight Man It s a great read
