Naomi Roth is the first female president of Webster College, a once-conservative school now known for producing fired-up progressive graduates. So Naomi isn't surprised or unduly alarmed when Webster students begin the fall semester with an outdoor encampment around "The Stump" - a traditional campus gathering place for generations of student activists - to protest a popular professor's denial of tenure.

A most insightful journey into the privileged world of Ivy League academia. This novel has everything. It’s witty; it’s smart; it’s enlightening ; it’s moving and it has the pace of a psychological thriller.
Kate Burton catches every nuance in a tour-de-force performance that brings this great work to palpable life.
