About this title


Thirty-something Morris Gutman is a chronically indecisive temporary lecturer at the University of Coketown. Life hasn't turned out as he planned: he has a demanding wife, an insomniac child and teaches demeaning courses to ungrateful English students. However, he is willing to do whatever it takes to negotiate a permanent departmental job, even if it means finding his way through the minefield that is academia and winning over the alluring and manipulative research fellow Zoe Cable.


`Hugely entertaining' -- <i>The Times</i><br /><br />`In this sardonic academic novel, McGuire wittily exposes his <br />characters' pretensions and frustrations ... very funny' -- <i>Sunday Times</i><br /><br />`Lucky Jim for the twenty-first century' -- <i>The Times </i><br /><br />`McGuire's comic timing is faultless' -- <i>Observer</i><br /><br />`McGuire's humour, eye for detail ... and agile prose lift this <br />way above the crowd' <br /> -- <i>Arena</i>
