Overview

CONTEMPORARY/HUMOROUS FICTION COLLECTION BOOK ONE - A ROLLICKING ROMP THROUGH THE HALLS OF ACADEMIA - THE FAMOUS UNION has readers saying that it has "flashes of Vonnegut," that it is "an academic version of Catch 22," that it "is a hoot!" and that it is "one of few books that has made me laugh out loud."

Famous Union College is a place where what is what is not, where compromise is a four-letter word. It is a pretty little college with expensive fountains, cute coeds, and brand new artificial turf on the football field. It seems like the perfect place to work, but not all is as it seems, as the once-proud institution of higher learning is suddenly overwhelmed by madcap hilarity at every turn.

From the author of the endearing story THE SURVIVAL OF MARVIN BAINES.

Editorial Reviews

FREE BOOK REVIEWS - Albert Robbins III
"College life as we never knew it. The plot is quick and will entertain at every turn."
Indie BookSpot - Chris Algernon
"A fast-paced and frequently hilarious tale of life in academia, Michael Meyer's The Famous Union actually reminded me a little of Tom Sharpe's Wilt, with one important exception: I actually found The Famous Union to be funnier, more biting and more inventive."
Hampton Reviews - Jennifer Hampton
"The characters are all interesting and well developed - and many would be great study cases for a psych major."
The Midwest Review of Books - Diane Donovan
"The Famous Union is a comedy romp through the halls of academic insanity - and presents a school whose motto is 'just wait till next year.' Readers - especially those familiar with academic ironies - will find it filled with fun!"
