Dear Committee Members by Julie Schumacher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I tire of professional bureaucracy, so of course I read a book that's pretty much a significant skewer toward it.
A fictional collection of letters that are letters of reference and recommendation to a post, the humor in them are the little tales about each recommended person and the overall frustration of those who have to read and write them.
More sensible chuckle than laugh out loud, the joke sort of gets stale by the time things end, but there are enough pleasant bits throughout to at least make this worth powering through. And at under 200 pages, it's not a huge investment, so it's perhaps worth a look. Especially good if you're into epistolary narratives.
Closer to a 3.5.
