"Fearless, merciless, and hilarious, The Pamela Papers belongs on the same shelf of academic comedies as Straight Man and Dear Committee Members. You'll laugh until you cry or, if you know how frighteningly true this story is, maybe just cry."

- James Tate Hill, author of Blind Man's Bluff

"I can count on one hand great comedic academic novels. The Pamela Papers is one of them. This handful of email/Zoom scenes add up to a hilarious, absurd, and realistic interpretation of the educational experience in general, and small colleges in particular. Oh how weird things become, during the pandemic."

- George Singleton, author of The Curious Lives of Nonprofit Martyrs

"Like 'Black Mirror' and 'The Twilight Zone, ' Nancy McCabe's latest book, The Pamela Papers, hits so close to life in our brave new world it's hard to call it satire. Yet The Pamela Papers is a brilliant, timely, hysterically funny, disturbing, and poignant glimpse into university life during and after the pandemic."

- Lori Jakiela, author of They Write Your Name on a Grain of Rice
