Do you remember all of the intellectually stimulating discussions about the assigned summer reading that you shared with other freshmen during Orientation?
Yeah, neither do we. What finch beaks? Where are the places in between? Proust who?
But maybe 2014ers will actually read their assigned book this year, since it’s a work of fiction by acclaimed Haitian-American author Edwidge Danticat. Titled The Dew Breaker, the novel promises prison guards, torture and Brooklyn. What could be better?
