Recommended Reading: Tim Bascom "Community College" ~ Witness

Appearing at Witness, Tim Bascom's "Community College" is a brilliant, funny, moving piece of nonfiction. The narrative voice is mostly objective while at times almost exasperated and sarcastic but thoroughly feeling and human throughout. The story unfolds through a sort of role call for class attendance. The narrator tells us who hasn't come from the class, who has come, and meanwhile readers are treated to a very original, gripping read and wonderfully vivid, fleshed out character. Check it out.
