0.0 0 5 Autor: Lawrence Douglas,Alexander George
Two widely published humor columnists and "bad boys" of academia take their wit and wisdom to dazzling new lows in this irreverent send-up of highbrow literary culture. At last, the thinking person's take on the life of the mind in today's increasingly mindless age. Sense and Nonsensibility pokes fun at everyone from spoof-proof scholars to pompous professors; from anal-retentive authors to plagiarizing poets; from snake-oil therapists to bestselling illiterati. This singular collection by Professors Lawrence Douglas and Alexander George brings together their most popular pieces, along with many brand-new ones, including: • The Academy Awards for novels -- with categories for "Best Female Protagonist -- Doomed," "Best Narrator -- Unreliable," and "Best Novel -- Unfinishable by Reader" • Home Shopping University -- offering the greatest ideas in Western history at rock-bottom prices • I'm Okay, I'm Okay: Accepting Narcissism -- the best in "Self-helplessness books" • The Penis Orations -- Iron Man's answer to The Vagina Monologues • "Ask the Academic Ethicist" -- their notorious advice column, which has shocked higher education
