Finally, finally, I opened the mailbox last night and there was my dissertation, returned with comments from the markers. Not many, mind. And I had to laugh when I read this comment on the critique I submitted as part of the M.A. requirements:
Might I suggest a book you would find useful, The Forest for the Trees, Betsy Lerner.
Really? Ya think?
Just to be clear, do you mean that book I have two copies of, including one inscribed by the author?
Uhm, yeah, thanks for that, guys.
(We’ll ignore the fact that I cited Forest For the Trees in my bibliography. No one reads those anyway, right?)
