[spine slightly turned, a bit of dust-soiling to top edge, a couple of lightly bumped corners, one-time owner's address label on front pastedown; jacket moderately edgeworn, spine browned, small chip at top of rear panel; jacket a teensy bit shorter than the book, apparently made that way]. "A novel of protest, written by a young apostle of revolt, against the present system of education in the colleges." Although the author is not identified by gender, the book seems to have a definite feminist slant, telling of the travails of a young graduate student teaching Freshman English while dealing with "the undercurrent of malice and politics" at the university. She finds that "the departments are run by old men who have lost touch with the students," and feels herself "powerless to defeat the red-tape and apathetic disregard of the older men." Neither the city nor the specific university in the book are identified, but add the Chicago imprint to the description of the school "on the shore of the great lake, in the broad Middle-West," do the math and get back to me about where YOU think it is. (The author of the 1962 study "The College Novel in America" speculated that the book was "possibly by ZoŽ Flannagan," but gives no indication who the hell "ZoŽ Flannagan" might have been. Thanks for nothing.)
