Still trying to figure this one out. Decided reading it again wasn't going to help

I found this book slightly disappointing. It was amusing, but no where near the quality of writing I had expected from a Pulitzer Prize-winning author. I trifle disjointed, it explores the silly and outrageous antics of a midwestern college campus. The politics of the staff and administration, the emotional upheavals of the undergraduates, and all the goings-on of the people who wrestle for grant money for the university. It has a lot going for it, but did not live up to expectations.

Based on Iowa State University, where she taught for a number of years. Sorta snide and exploitive. Really bites the hand that fed her.

A very funny book, a satire which also manages to tug at your heartstrings.
