Would a quote from "Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America" count? I know Barbara Ehrenreich isn't what you intended, but the pain of reading that book has stayed with me more then a year after I read it.

I would love to answer your question in regards to novels and writers, but the first year of grad school allows for no such thoughts. If you could put the question into a mathematical formula and ask me to prove if it is an ‘if and only if’ statement, I might be capable of attempting an answer. For added realism if you could tell me how easy the question is after I have spent four hours getting nowhere then I would feel securely in my element.



Alas, Chris the first year of grad school severely limits one's reading of fiction. (Unless, of course, you count MasCollel Whinston and Greene). It gets better.

(Until you're on the job market. Then it gets crazy again.)
