In this darkly satirical send-up of academia and the Midwest, we are introduced to Moo University, a distinguished institution devoted to the study of agriculture. Amid cow pastures and waving fields of grain, Moo's campus churns with devious plots, mischievous intrigue, lusty liaisons, and academic one-upmanship, Chairman X of the Horticulture Department harbors a secret fantasy to kill the dean; Mrs. Walker, the provost's right hand and campus information queen, knows where all the bodies are buried; Timothy Monahan, associate professor of English, advocates eavesdropping for his creative writing assignments; and Bob Carlson, a sophomore, feeds and maintains his only friend: a hog named Earl Butz. Wonderfully written and masterfully plotted, Moo gives us a wickedly funny slice of life.

An amusing and ironic romp by the award winning author of A Thousand Acres. The reader is shown the foibles and fables of a mid-western university by a writer who has a wicked and witty eye for words.

I'm shocked that "Moo" didn't receive higher ratings. I received it as a gift when it was first published. Don't remember any book that made me laugh so hard. Of course, I was an associate professor in a VERY political and hostile department in Neb. at the time. And I have a very black sense of humor. I highly recommend this painfully accurate view of academic life to anyone who fits either description.
