ENGLISH 422 reveals the power of the impact we can have upon
The students of Professor Abbie Cutter''s English 422 class are not
thinking of that impact as they interact and react, sharing their inner
thoughts and lives through their writings . The resulting effect of their
time together is intense; eventually leading to the death of one student,
the success of another, and the discovery of a new life for a third.
Professor Cutter appears to be more a facilitator than a professor,
as she uses herself to create an interactive environment among her
young, graduating students.
The reader will observe that in addition to the English education of
one group of college students, this unique novel presents an
abbreviation of life itself . The student''s experiences are stories
within the story; and the dramatic, life-changing events that evolve,
will keep you riveted!
One cannot escape identifying with one or more of the characters,
nor can one escape seeing the need of becoming more keenly
aware of the profound influence we can have on others.
"A must read for anyone who is curious about the passion
that fuels the writing process."
