I'm also about to start a book called Kaufman & Co., which has plays George Kaufman wrote with Edna Ferber, Moss Hart, Ring Lardner, and Morrie Ryskind.
It has a couple of musicals, though, which I'll skip. I don't really like reading musicals. I'm planning to start with June Moon because he wrote it with Ring Lardner, and Lardner's book "You Know Me Al" is a personal favorite of mine.
I was damn good as Herman Glogauer in a production of Hart & Kaufman's Once In a Lifetime a few years back.

UNI, about 12-13K, does not have grad students teaching their History, Political Science or English classes. Neither does a school like Coe, private, 2K.

Just checked out A Glorious Cause from the library. In large print version of course. Just finished A Rise to Rebellion by the same author, Jeff Shaara. Highly recommend him. Easy and compelling reading. Historically accurate.

Depending on the college, yes. It's not just something that happens at large state schools. I went to a liberal arts school of about 6K and took my freshman comp class from a grad student.

It all depends on the university, though. Schools w/ doctoral programs will often have their students teaching both freshman and sophomore level classes in a variety of disciplines.

I went to pre-order it, er, Friday maybe, and they didn't offer that release day delivery any more (I'd seen it earlier in the month), so I decided I'd just pick it up at a real world store. Luckily it's on the way to work, so no fuss, no muss.

I re-read The Gathering Storm last week, and it wasn't quite as bad as I remember (although I never thought it 'bad' so much as slightly off). The last chapter with Rand still bothers me though. It just doesn't work somehow.
