"The Ask" by Sam Lipsyte
"The Ask" by Sam Lipsyte is a quirky novel about Milo Burke, a loser in the academic fund-raising game. He's fired but then immediately rehired to land a major donor--his college roommate--for Mediocre State University. It's dark, funny, bitingly sarcastic and not for everyone. I learned more about what I ought not to do when I play Milo's role than what I should do.

"Women Who Run With The Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype" by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
A very interesting read! A deeply insightful and spiritual analysis of commonly known myths and stories with a female protagonist.
Mary Schoals, department assistant, Marketing and Public Information
