The setting for this novel is a large agricultural college in the American midwest. It is a satire using narrative style and allows the lives of dozens of characters during one academic year. In the idyllic Midwestern setting the college is rife with plots, intrigue, lusty liaisons and academic one-ups. The chairman of the Horticulture Dept. harbors a secret fantasy to kill the dean, the provost's right hand queen knows where all the bodies are buried, an associate professor of English advocates eavesdropping, and Bob, a sophomore, feeds and maintains his only friend; a hog named Earl Butz. This book is wonderfully written and masterfully plotted, giving us a wickedly funny slice of American life.
