Publisher's Summary

A witty and touching novella about life on the periphery of academia and Hollywood. Robert is an adjunct, a university lecturer commuting between two-far flung Los Angeles colleges. He doesn't have health insurance - a serious problem when he develops a violent allergy to student writing. Meanwhile he's trying to keep his car, and his relationship with a successful but skittish TV writer, from falling apart.

You'll feel as bad as he does

Slow, dull, depressing and filled with the minutiae in a life of quiet desperation. I didn't make it too far through this one and I wouldn't advise giving it a try; anti-depressants can only do so much.
