I want to write a book about college. There’s a startling lack of fiction set during these years; it’s like everything skips straight from high school to office life and marriage. But, to paraphrase a friend, we naturally seek out representations of ourselves. And it’s hard enough going through college and all the adjustments therein without having the up-to-now comforting world of fiction to back you up. It’s just a gap I’d like to fill.
But I don’t really know how to begin.
