This is very bright satire in the tradition of John Barth. Is Green Acres the place to be? Professor and bestselling author Race Fletcher thinks so, but he chooses tiny, corn-field surrounded Jasper College as his retreat from New York City. His work Deconstructing Green Acres has put him at the top of the academic pecking order. At the bottom in Jasper is Underdog, who was expelled a few weeks into his Freshman year for smoking marijuana. Now he's a townee and works in the campus copy shop, a classic slacker. When both men are rivals for the same woman's love, Underdog is bound to lose.But it turns out that both Race and the College's president have secrets, the students are restless, and a copy shop can become a position of power even if you are just a lowly townee.
