The Man With the Grasshopper Mind is a satirical romp, a burlesque of gender politics in the groves of academe. Dr. Douglas Ian MacPherson (Mac) is a professor at Daventry University. In his role as a scientist, he understands rats, though not, apparently, women.

He begins by clashing with Dr. Naomi Gelsey-Ashdown of the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies, goes on to offend every female on campus, and ends by alienating the affections (such as they were) of his wife.

Even Mac’s colleagues don’t care to know him, and aside from his dog, he has only one good friend and true—his marriage counselor and drinking companion, Dr. Yeti Bahnjakris.
