I'm glad to hear you say so (or, read you write so). Reading it again, I really think he was just trying to impress his supervisors by puffing up my case so that it would attract more attention. But he isn't even doing that very well. I think most writing teachers would steer budding novelists away from words like “interesting”.
> Sounds like he wasn't the sharpest crayon in the box...
He was at an extremely presitigious institution and had an impressive med school / post grad resume. But he seemed to be very clumsy interpersonally; he reminded me of certain teenage boys. I couldn't understand why someone with apparently so little sensitivity would *want* to be a psychiatrist.
He went on to work at a forensic psychiatric firm. Virtually all the company does is test and testify about competence and the state of others' minds.
So, he won't be working clinically. He'll only have people's freedom in his hands. :-(
Thanks for your reply.
