in-fighting. State budget cuts. The joy of fund raising
and dealing with unethical corporate donors. FBI and CIA
conspiracies. Extra-marital affairs. Campus protests.
Fist fights. And sex - in the library stacks (as a librarian
I can testify this happens more than one would think…),
in the hallway, in the dorm, in the bedroom… Moo
has it all. A tongue-in-cheek look at university life
on a mythical campus in the American mid-west in 1989-90,
Moo is a fast-paced, light hearted fun read. The
book has interesting story-lines and well drawn characters,
including the all-knowing, all powerful secretary who
is the real power behind the throne, faculty members who
range from young and idealistic to middle-aged know-it-alls,
and a fascinating farm-yard animal.
finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction, Moo is a good read for both those working
in academia and for those who just want a light read on a lazy Sunday afternoon, or something to distract one
from the pain whilst working out at the gym.
