If you have not had the pleasure of losing your sincerity to collegiate cynicism, Stephen Akey gives you a marvelous "crash course," tuition-free. If you've been through it, College serves as a hilarious reminder of the way we were. From the agony of not getting into a superstar institution to the juggling act of social lethargy as art form and grades as superfluous authentication of self, Akey hits the high and low notes of the academic foxtrot in this exceptionally entertaining memoir.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR

EDITORIAL REVIEWS & BLURBS
College is perfectly carried off, honest, and very, very funny. What makes it so wonderful a piece of writing is the beautifully evoked commonness of the experience. -- Louis Menand
