"The English department at the University of Washagon is in a uproar. Professor Adam Snell - humanist, scholar, gadfly and faculty pariah - has disappeared without a trace." "Stranger still, all copies of his obscure but brilliant novel, Sovrana Sostrata, also seem to be missing." "Has Snell been murdered? Has his book been murdered? And, more important, if Snell is not dead, does his department have the power to fire him at his upcoming post-tenure review?" "So begins Book, a hilarious academic caper that lampoons clever critical theorists, spoofs the New York book-publishing scene, parodies at least seventeen separate literary forms and unleashes Frank Underwood, a deranged theorist with a high-powered target pistol - and a pathological hatred for Adam Snell." "And that's just for starters." "Book also contains a touching love story, an unforgettable mongrel dog, a genetically engineered garden weed, a power-crazed, sexually dazed chairwoman, a novel accused of rape and a revolt of footnotes that halts the text." "Book is the wildest, woolliest campus satire since Lucky Jim - brilliantly on-target send-up of contemporary fads and follies."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

When Professor Adam Snell disappears from his office at University of Washagon, and then most copies of his somewhat controversial and already rare novel start to disappear, the police find him almost dead. Book is the story of his recovery, search for the killer (who is revealed to the audience early in the book) and the burgeoning commercial success of the book upon republication.

Admittedly, I am probably not this novel's target audience. I found it a bit dated, lacking in tension for most of the book and an amateurish satire of the field of post-modern literary theory. While I can appreciate the absurdity of academia, I found the book a bit tiresome and not much in the story to recommend it. ( )

He sat on his haunches, his breath clouding the glass on the inside of the front door, his brown eyes intent on the far corner of the laurel hedge past the driveway, where he might first catch sight of his master returning.
