Pictures from an Institution by Randall Jarrell

Book cover for Pictures from an Institution

Beneath the unassuming surface of a progressive women's college lurks a world of intellectual pride and pomposity awaiting devastation by the pens of two brilliant and appalling wits. Jarrell's classic novel was originally published to overwhelming critical acclaim in 1954, forging a new standard for campus satire - and instantly yielding comparisons to Dorothy Parker's razor-sharp barbs. Like his fictional nemesis, Jarrell cuts through the earnest conversations at Benton College - mischievously, but with mischief nowhere more wicked than when crusading against the vitriolic heroine herself.
