When Acting Visiting Assistant Professor L. Circassian is fired and rehired in the same week (with a 35 percent pay cut), he is only at the beginning of a cycle of abuse and professional debasement at the university. Jewish Currents education correspondent Joel Shatzky has created an hilarious novel about the corporatization of higher education — a book filled with blowhard deans, corrupt politicians, grasping CEOs, inept union officials, inappropriately dressed students, and scholars in donkey ears.
"Option Three is a very funny book, enlivened by new and very creative words ('yibbled,' 'blicking,' 'charfled,' 'traffled,' and many others) and ideas." —Lawrence S. Wittner, Huffington Post
"An imaginative, funny and sometimes all too realistic novel about life in today's colleges and universities. Shatzky tells it like it (unfortunately) is in today's academic world." —Del Janik, Professor Emeritus, Department of English, SUNY, Cortland
