Moo

Smiley, Jane

Jane Smiley, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Thousand Acres, instantly captured the admiration and laughter of readers everywhere when Moo was published. A New York Times best- seller, it is a hilarious tour through the inner sanctums of a Midwestern university. Everyone at the large agricultural college dubbed Moo U. has an agenda. Whether it’s massaging data, running secret experiments, or seducing the powerful, each person is dedicated to a plan. Meet Dr. Lionel Gift, who feels that his economic principles come directly from God. See Earl Butz, who is being groomed to be the biggest hog in history. Mull over The Common Wisdom, what every secretary knows. As these agendas begin to collide, Moo trots toward a deliciously loony climax. Although Moo focuses a sharp eye on academia, its satire is tempered by loveable characters who ring absolutely true. Through narrator Suzanne Toren’s performance, you’ll soon feel like part of the lively herd at Moo U.

The book we will be discussing at the July meeting is titled "Moo" by Jane Smiley.

    I love Jane Smiley, A Thousand Acres and Horse Heaven, loved them both. I believe her mother lives or once lived on Sanibel. I look forward to reading this but I will have to miss because I will reading it from Paris. Have a great discussion.
