Overview

By the time her divorce is finalized, Jeannette Azisse has changed her name to Jan Klein in preparation for her move to Manhattan. She accepts a position at Our Lady of the Saints, a small Catholic college on the Upper East Side, the only place of higher learning in Manhattan where she can get a job.

Klein wants so badly to be a professor that she is willing to be a poorly paid adjunct. In 1980, while Our Lady of the Saints pays her $50 a week to teach anatomy/kinesiology, dance history, literature and critical thinking, she gets her first wrestling job. She earns $1000 for her first wrestling photo shoot. But even with her wrestling income and her adjunct professor salary, how will she survive?

How to Survive as an Adjunct Professor by Wrestling chronicles the fascinating period from the 1970s to 2006 in New York, Paris, and the Middle East, and delves into the problems associated with higher education in America. Author Julia Keefer shows us her witty, satirical, and unusual slant on politics, religion, sex, terrorism, and cyberspace. Enjoy this wild ride into experimental literary fiction with its multiple narrators, including the Cyborg, the Sphinx, The Statue of Liberty and personified particle physics.
