Middle Class White Student Shocks Friends And Family With Desire To Work In Publishing
In the small hours of yesterday evening third year English Literature student, Alice Fair-Weather Brown, made a shocking revelation to her friends and family…that following her graduation she wanted to work in publishing.
Miss Brown commented: “I know it is a surprise to everyone, me a middle class white person wanting to go into publishing, but this is just my dream and I have to follow it. I know I have complained about the amount I must read throughout my entire degree, but it is all I know now. I don’t think I will go into it straight away, maybe teach some English in one of the poor countries that isn’t here and is nice and warm first.
Alice’s Father, Tarquin Brown also stated to us that:
“I am just genuinely shocked. We have been a family of white middle class people for generations now and not one of us has gone into publishing. None of her friends want to go into publishing and it is going to be a very difficult road for Alice. I just don’t have the contacts I would like to set her up… like I only know the Chief-Execs at Penguin, Thames and Hudson and Random House, that just isn’t enough to get someone off to a fair start. If it doesn’t work out we may have to sell our holiday home in Spain to support her for a few years. We can only pray that she makes it from there.”
