KIRKUS REVIEW

A pasquinade (a good academic word if there ever was one) and #51 in the oeuvre -- in prose rather than prosody this time -- dealing with the various functionaries and activities in the world of higher education which could drive you up the ivy wall. From Admission to Thesis, with assorted Apple Polishers, Athletes, Deans, Co-Eds in between. There are illustrations by Paul Darrow and who will question Mr. Armour's tenure or the reader whom you know well -- Alumnus Emeritus.
