Summary

The National Book Award Finalist from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Francine Prose—now the major motion picture Submission   “Screamingly funny … Blue Angel culminates in a sexual harassment hearing that rivals the Salem witch trials.” —USA Today

It's been years since Swenson, a professor in a New England creative writing program, has published a novel. It's been even longer since any of his students have shown promise. Enter Angela Argo, a pierced, tattooed student with a rare talent for writing. Angela is just the thing Swenson needs. And, better yet, she wants his help. But, as we all know, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Deliciously risque, Blue Angel is a withering take on today's academic mores and a scathing tale that vividly shows what can happen when academic politics collides with political correctness.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With her sharply etched characters and her keen sense of satire, Prose breathes new life into a standard story of academe.” Booklist
“Astutely observed, often laugh-aloud funny, and sometimes touching…A peerlessly accomplished performance, at once tinglingly contemporary and timelessly funny.” Publishers Weekly
