Overview

Publish and Perish: Three Tales of Tenure and Terror by James Hynes

A New York Times Notable Book of the Year

A Publisher's Weekly Best Book of the Year

Combining the wit of David Lodge with Poe's delicious sense of the macabre, these are three witty, spooky novellas of satire set in academia—a world where Derrida rules, love is a "complicated ideological position," and poetic justice is served with an ideological twist.

Just re-read, and I must say Hynes is the best thing in quirky terror since Shirley Jackson...except funnier. You don't need any background in academia (I haven't one) to appreciate his send-ups of campus politics and scholarly fads.
