Summary
"It has been years since Swenson, a professor of creative writing at a small New England college, has published a novel of his own. It's been even longer since a student of his has shown a glimmer of talent. And academia, with its increasingly stifling politically correct environment, isn't what it used to be. Enter Angela Argo, a pierced, tattooed student with a rare gift for writing. Fearless and ambitious, Angela seems like the answer to Swenson's prayers. Better yet, she wants his help. What could be more perfect? However, as experience shows, the road to hell is paved with good intentions"--
Summary
An ironic look at modern academia offers the chronicle of the trials and tribulations of Swenson, a frustrated college professor who finds that Angela Argo, a post-punk, oft-pierced student, has a brilliant writing talent
