Burnt cover

    Olsen blends elements of chaos theory, deconstruction, and more in a humorous novel that is part environmental dystopia, part academic farce ... Tempered by the tender love of Murph and Tanya, by a subtly frightening vision of ecological degradation, and, most of all, by true wit, he's offered a funny cautionary tale.
    Publishers Weekly

Murph Porter, an avant-prof at Central Kentucky University, is getting really sick and tired of reading bad student prose. He goes just a bit over the top trying to educate his charges in this comic eco-novel about murder, mayhem, and that late-millennial search for the perfect bottle of water. Academentia was never this much fun.
