Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity’s recollection of the night their family was forever altered. Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the already grieving father.   The book's thesis is that students generally support affirmative action -- both for admissions and for faculty hiring. They acknowledge that it doesn't seem that way. Debates about court cases and the very concept of affirmative action are widespread and -- in some cases -- ugly. Both sides accuse the other of racism.   A novel that feels awfully similar to the current real-life college admissions scandal, "Admission" by bestselling author Julie Buxbaum tracks the uber-privileged life of Chloe Berringer and how she copes when her family suddenly becomes embroiled in an FBI investigation.   That is one theme of a new book, The Future of Affirmative Action: New Paths to Higher Education Diversity After Fisher v. University of Texas, and it was a subtle but persistent subtext of a half-day discussion of the book here Tuesday. The authors, who participated in the event, spoke with varying degrees of directness about the threat posed.
