Alright, so I have a three page paper due tomorrow and I'm at a loss for what to write about. The assignment seems very vague to me and my professor won't email me back. Here's the assignment, as written on the syllabus: "[The paper] should center on your reaction to the work. Tell me what you think of the book, what you felt was powerful or weak, what you identified with or didn't identify with, what you felt sounded true of unbelievable." That's pretty much it. The book is called Losing Absalom and here is a short summary of it. http://litmed.med.nyu.edu/Annotation?action=view&annid=482 Obviously, I'm not looking for anything specific unless you happen to have read this book, but I don't know how to get started on this paper. I can't get a sense of direction, and I have no clue how I can combine those elements into a thesis to get me started. Remember it's due tomorrow 12/1! Help! I really appreciate any comments. Thanks guys.
