The Semester of Our Discontent By Cynthia Kuhn: Review/Giveaway
by Cynthia Chow
Although Colorado’s Stonedale University loftily considers itself to be an exclusive provider of a liberal arts higher education, it’s also a fall-back for those who came close but never quite made it into Ivy League institutions. This is where thirty year-old Lila Maclean finds herself as a newly hired professor of American Literature. Until she reaches tenure in six years, Lila will be forced to teach classes, advise students, head committees, and still manage to publish in distinguished journals or presses. All while also keeping her head down and not offending the department chairs and other senior professors.
