"The Recommendation"

Chicago Reader calls The Recommendation “a penetrating analysis of class privilege” which “balances on the razor’s edge of hilarious excess and wrenching realism.” In a brush with the law, the disparate perspectives of two friends in college take center stage. Can friendship overcome, or will privilege and connections reveal the rift between them?
