What would ensue if a David Lodge-esque academic milieu were described from a humorous Jewish feminist point of view? Marleen Barr, herself a pioneer in the feminist criticism of science fiction, provides an answer in this book, an irreverent romp through the groves of academe. Part memoir, part novel, part science fiction, this compulsively readable novel evokes such diverse influences as Philip Roth, Erica Jong, and Philip K. Dick while weaving together the best characteristics of postmodernism, science fiction, realism, idealization, feminism, and humor into a new fictional genre.
