The Northbury papers

Average Rating
Pub. Date:
As the case progresses, Professor Pelletier - intrepid researcher, defender of women's rights, and soldier on the front lines of the fight for academic progress - finds herself doing battle not only with an unknown killer but also with her own department chair; being threatened by the president of the board of trustees; and falling victim to the aristocratic charms of her college president. Any one of these peccadilloes, she realizes, might easily spell academic death to an untenured member of the faculty. And, in an ironic twist on the old professional adage, it begins to look as if Karen's determination to publish (the biography of a woman whose writing her colleagues look upon as trash) might actually cause her to perish - professionally, and perhaps in the decidedly non-metaphoric sense as well.
