Back cover:

They're academics, but their lives are anything but staid and stodgy. There's Persse, a young Galahad of a professor searching for his ideal woman; Morris Zapp, the American post-structuralist touting his latest paper: "Textuality as Striptease"; Fulvia Morgana, the Maserati-driving; anti-bourgeouis Italian professor; not to mention the mysterious, black-glovers Siegfried von Turpitz, among others. From Chicago to Ankara to Tokyo, they're chasing graduate students, seducing each other's spousesm and questing for the truth, good times, and the one glittering prize they all desire.
