Why We Love This

Pictures From an Institution by Randall Jarrell. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1954. First Edition. 278 pp. Hardcover with dust jacket. An academic satire focusing on the oddities of academic life and the interpersonal relationships among the characters. Likely modeled after Sarah Lawrence College where Jarrell taught. Humorous observations about his students and colleagues, in particular the offensively tactless novelist Gertrude, modeled on Mary McCarthy.
