Dear Committee Members by Julie Schumacher

This is a fun book, just right for when you want something entertaining to read, and don't want to think too hard.

Main character Jason T. Fitger is Professor of Creative Writing and English at Payne University. As such, he is asked hundreds and hundreds of times to write letters of recommendation for students, former students, colleagues, former colleagues, and people he is not sure he has ever met. They're looking for recommendations for jobs, fellowships, academic appointments, and funding.

Fitger is witty, he is acerbic, highly opinionated, and just can't keep those qualities out of his letters of recommendation. Each letter is a page or two, and includes enough information about what is going on in Professor Fitger's life to make you want to know more. 

Highly recommended in the "light but good" category.
