Attention All Adjunct Instructors
Anyone working as adjunct faculty should read this book! For over five years I worked 70 plus hours a week at two different colleges, barely making ends meet and always fearful of the future due to the fact that my jobs afforded little in the way of security or benefits. Adjunct instructors do the bulk of the teaching at most all colleges and universities, but are often the migrant workers of higher education. Little pay. Transient and impermanent positions. This novel captures the lives and struggles of adjunct professors like none other. You should be reading it.
