Faculty Towers

£12.99

Product description

In Faculty Towers the author takes a personal look at the ways novels about the academy have charted changes in university and society since 1950. With her readings of C. P. Snow's idealized world of Cambridge dons or of the globe-trotting antics of David Lodge's Morris Zapp, of the sleuthing of Kate Fansler in Amanda Cross's best-selling mystery series or of the recent spate of bitter novels in which narratives of sexual harassment seem to serve as fables of power, anger and desire, Showalter holds a mirror up to the world she has inhabited over the course of a distinguished and often controversial career.
