It's an enjoyable read I actually didn't really finish the book I only finished the first two stories and stopped at the beginning of the third story I am like this I probably will pick up the 3rd one in a little while I love the cat story and somehow it has some Edgar Allan Poe uality to it I am not sure I understand the second story correctly There might be some reference or connotation that I have completely missed The hero was drugged and was carried into the famous Stonehenge area Was he going to be sacrificed

A New York Times Notable Book of the YearA Publisher's Weekly Best Book of the YearCombining Publish and PDF or the wit of. Very disappointing Oh well written and all; sometimes very witty especially if you've spent any time in academia among academics OK fair dues there are some hilarious digs at academic prima donnas academic cat fighting and fashions in academic discourse Just chosen at random he concocted an whole new outline for his book chapter after chapter 'The Sitcom at the End of the New Frontier The Brady Bunch and The Wild Bunch in Contrapuntal Perspective' 'A French Bikini on a Wild Island Girl The Tempest Gilligan's Island and the Social Construction of the Narrative of Abandonment' If you don't find that hilarious just trust me you had to be there The real punch line to the joke is that there are probably actual articles out there in distinguished academic journals with just those titles So as a satire on the lengths that otherwise decent people will go to to get a tenured position at a mediocre institution of learning this is right on the moneyBut page after page it begins to feel a bit like shooting fish in a barrel In the three novellas that comprise Publish and Perish we meet three academic horrors two of whom are willing to kill to achieve or maintain their academic status and the third well I'm not exactly sure what the protagonist of '99' the middle of the three stories does to deserve the fate that is meted out to him Yes he's not a nice person He's a bit of an arrogant prat But still if we're talking just deserts it seems like overkill Publish and Perish is advertised on the cover as Three Tales of Tenure and TERROR the caps are theirs and it's as TERROR that is fails for me The three novellas are just not the tiniest bit frightening or haunting The third story 'Casting the Runes' has its moments but the climax cross dressing intrigue at a panel at an academic conference loses all focus in a difficult to follow and easy to skim farce As twist in the tale stories they fail because it's pretty obvious exactly what's going to happen to whom after about two pages I'm uite sure there have been episodes of The Twilight Zone that have done it all before

Publish and PerishDavid Lodge with Poe's delicious sense of the macabre these are three witty spooky novellas of satire set in academia a w. The toxic careerist culture of modern academia has produced a bounty of wonderfully entertaining fiction the short list of which must include Kingsley Amis’s “Lucky Jim” Randall Jarrell’s “Pictures from an Institution” Malcolm Bradbury’s “The History Man” John Barth’s “Giles Goat Boy” and David Lodge’s “Changing Places” and “Small World” But never at least to my knowledge has it produced anything uite like the three fiendishly clever novellas contained in James Hynes’ “Publish and Perish” All of them deal with the perils and politics of postmodernist deconstructionist scholarship and in all them I’m happy to report the intellectually guilty receive their just deserts Some reviewers have identified Edgar Allan Poe as the primary influence in these ever so modern horror stories but the obvious inspiration here seems to be M R James an early 20th century English don once considered the world champion of ghost story writers but now known only to enthusiasts of archaic genre fiction James' spooky atmosphere pervades all three of Hynes’ delightful shockers most explicitly in his final and best tale “Casting the Runes” Highly recommended to both fans of academic satire and modern horror
