Praise from Tara Altebrando for the new edition of Higher Education (Viking 1987, Open Road Media 2016): “A brilliant time capsule from the 80s, Higher Education takes readers on a breakneck tour through ten days in the vertiginous life of a Harvard senior, Miranda Walker, and the result is hilarious, whipsmart, and maybe just a little bit sad. It’s a perfect depiction of the end of college, when life feels like a sinking ship. Luckily for us, Miranda isn’t going down quietly.”
In April 2016, Open Road Media is publishing a new edition of Lisa’s first novel Higher Education, originally published by Viking Penguin in 1987. The 2016 edition will include an afterword by Jeff Gomez, author of Our Noise and Print Is Dead, praise from David Foster Wallace and Betsy Byars, and a newly designed cover.
