Buffalo Trace: A Threefold Vibration, by Mary Cappello et al
Smart, honest, and beautifully written, these three tales of grad school life in the 1980s could be called Love in the Time of Deconstruction. A hothouse world of brains, bodies, books, and doubt (in Buffalo, no less), it's all a bit mad, but in the exciting, necessary way of life in your twenties. Buffalo Trace: A Threefold Vibration is a strange, original, wonderful book.
