More Academics Behaving Badly

Last night's book was Imaginary Friends by Alison Lurie. Actually it was also this morning's and this lunchtime's book, because I fell asleep last night while reading it. Don't be misled, though - this book is hilarious, featuring Lurie's usual cast of academics but this time focussing mainly on their professional lives as two sociologists set out to investigate a nutty religious group. The author's usual style is wry and witty, but in this book there are several laugh-out-loud moments. The action is bizarre but also believable; you could imagine real people getting in to these situations. A cautionary tale!

Day 100; Book 99
