How do you fix things when you’re failing at every part of your life? Don’t ask me. I did okay in high school. I had friends, dated, even made decent grades thanks to my brainy twin sister. But now high school’s over. It’s time to be a man... if only I knew how. I couldn’t live by my stepfather’s rules, so I flew the coop and landed at my genetic father’s, in Spain. A whole new country for me to screw up in. So of course, I did. After I’d burned through a second family, there was nowhere left for me to go.

In her masterfully plotted novel, Moo, Pulitzer-Prize winner Jane Smiley offers us both a sharply funny comedy and a darkly poignant slice of life. Nestled in the heart of the Midwest, amid cow pastures and waving fields of grain, lies Moo University, a distinguished institution devoted to the art and science of agriculture. Here, in an atmosphere rife with devious plots, lusty liaisons, and academic one-upmanship, Chairman X of the Horticulture Department harbours a secret fantasy to kill the dean; Mrs Walker, the provost's right-hand and campus information queen, knows where all the bodies are buried; Timothy Monahan, associate professor of English, advocates eavesdropping for his creative writing assignments; and Bob Carlson, a sophomore, feeds and maintains his only friend: a hog named Earl Butz.
