A Sense of Humor revolves around literature student Paul as he makes his way through academia. Essay burnout and seminar room anxiety are only two of the challenges that Paul manages to overcome in the novel. His perceptive contributions would win any tutor over. Yet, there's one professor he's keener to impress: Laura.
Laura is "blonde and quite attractive." She runs the Modern English Literature module; she is insistently impressed by the points Paul makes on Virginia Woolf. The chemistry between the two of them is palpable.
However, Laura keeps mentioning "her boyfriend" whenever she speaks to Paul. Paul himself is still seeing another woman quite regularly. Will Paul manage to confess his feelings to Laura? Actually, will the protagonist have to forget about his tutor altogether?
Reading A Sense of Humor will give you the answers. Its minimalist prose and fast pacing will keep you hooked from Chapter One.
