Pictures from an Institution: A Comedy (Phoenix Fiction) by Randall Jarrell

The father of the modern campus novel, and the wittiest of them all. Extraordinary to think that political correctness was so deliciously dissected 50 years ago.--Noel Malcolm, Sunday Telegraph Move over Dorothy Parker. Pictures . . . is less a novel than a series of poisonous portraits, set pieces, and endlessly quotable put-downs. Read it less for plot than sharp satire, Jarrells forte.--Mary Welp Im greatly impressed by the real fun, the incisive satire, the closeness of observation, and in the end by a kind of sympathy and human warmth. Its a remarkable book.--Robert Penn Warren
