I would like to very cautiously recommend Emotionally Weird by Kate Atkinson. As in, rfisher, don't you go near this book or say I didn't warn you. Nothing much happens other than graduate level classes in English in some god-forsaken college in Dundee. But if you ever were a grad student in English or are familiar with the lay of that land, you may enjoy it. Basically, Atkinson rips them all a new one in an enjoyably snarky way.
As an aside, the spell check no longer underlines 'snarky.' Has it been added as an official word to the Big Dictionary?
