    I stumbled across this book - and having taught English in a small college for many years (mercifully one that has an amazing collective agreement that treats all sessional instructors pretty reasonably), I enjoyed the vivisection of departmental politics. The laconic style, the determinedly laid back approach of the professor/detective, and the humour all add up to a lot of fun. The plotting is okay - you don't ever really get worried, but the characters, pastiches really, are great.

Plus I love his attitude towards the theoretical approaches to literature - ie, let's get them to read the text and find out what's interesting about it.

    This was a really short and fun read. The 1st person narration was a nice change esp. since the narrator had a great sense of humor. It was a quirky and simple story but w/ good character development and a just deep enough storyline. Will look forward to reading other Joe Barley mysteries.
