Higher Education: Chronicles of a Dumpster Fire by Dr. Ashley Oliphant
Dr. Livie Green is an associate professor of English at Clary-Smith University and it’s fixing to snap her very last nerve. While Green and her wickedly sharp colleagues attempt to keep the school’s dysfunction from driving them to drink (any more than they already do in faculty meetings), their feckless dean works jigsaw puzzles in his office, and schedules utterly useless meetings to pass the time. Meanwhile, the even more aimless administration attempts to shut down the scandalous—but totally true—underground faculty newspaper that exposes the ineptitude of the institution’s leaders at every turn.
Author of five books and a professor with twenty years of college teaching experience, Dr. Ashley Oliphant drops the mic on academia in this uproariously funny prequel to Jimmy Buffett: A Key West Revival, and offers comedic insight into the unfortunate state of higher education in America today.
