Description - Talking Out of School by Kass Fleisher

This bitterly funny memoir reads like an expos of the power structures in America's higher education system: who's got it, how they're abusing it, what everyone else is willing to do to get it, and the social cost of doing educational business this way. We follow our protagonist, Kassie, as the academic world reshapes her life, her worst secrets and most humiliating mistakes revealing deep problems of race, class, gender, and sexuality. We watch as she alienates her family by hanging her "snobbish" nose over books; as she embarks on an adulterous affair with her instructor; as she comes to terms with her racist attitudes toward her own inner-city students; and as she abandons her principles for the sake of her career. A scathing and fierce work, at once sorry and triumphant.
