9780060882037: Blue Angel

It's been years since Swenson, a professor of creative writing at a small American college, has published a novel of his own. And it's been longer since one of his students has shown the faintest glimmer of talent. Enter Angela Argo: pierced, tattooed, sullen - and a wonderful writer. Swenson can't believe his good fortune at having such a gifted student. Nurturing Angela's talent becomes his obsession, he is more than happy to find time to give her the extra-curricular, one-to-one tutorials she craves. Revitalised by Angela, Swenson's life seems perfect. However, as experience shows, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Nominated for the prestigious National Book Award, Blue Angel is one of the most acclaimed American novels of recent years. A pitch-perfect, wickedly funny satire on academia, it is a joy to read.

Product Description:

It has been years since Swenson, a professor in a New England creative writing program, has published a novel. It's been even longer since any of his students have shown promise. Enter Angela Argo, a pierced, tattooed student with a rare talent for writing. Angela is just the thing Swenson needs. And, better yet, she wants his help. But, as we all know, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. . . .

Deliciously risque, Blue Angel is a withering take on today's academic mores and a scathing tale that vividly shows what can happen when academic politics collides with political correctness.
