At last, the thinking person's take on the life of the mind in today's increasingly mindless age. "Sense and Nonsensibility" pokes fun at everyone from spoof-proof scholars to pompous professors; from anal-retentive authors to plagiarizing poets; from snake-oil therapists to bestselling illiterati. This singular collection by Professors Lawrence Douglas and Alexander George brings together their most popular pieces, along with many brand-new ones, including: - The Academy Awards for novels -- with categories for "Best Female Protagonist -- Doomed," "Best Narrator -- Unreliable," and "Best Novel -- Unfinishable by Reader" - Home Shopping University -- offering the greatest ideas in Western history at rock-bottom prices - "I'm Okay, I'm Okay: Accepting Narcissism" -- the best in "Self-helplessness books" - "The Penis Orations" -- Iron Man's answer to "The Vagina Monologues" - "Ask the Academic Ethicist" -- their notorious advice column, which has shocked higher education Sense and Nonsensibility: Lampoons of Learning and Literature Douglas, Lawrence / George, Alexander, Touchstone Books
