Murdering Americans by Ruth Dudley Edwards

Book Description

"...No one brings down the temple with more outrageous wit and style than Ruth Dudley Edwards." -The New York Times "The fun...starts on the very first page and doesn't stop until the very last." -Booklist starred review "A scathing...attack on over-the-top PC." -Kirkus Reviews Baroness (Jack) Troutbeck likes new challenges, so she leaps at an invitation to become a Distinguished Visiting Professor on an American campus. With her head full of romantic fantasies inspired by 1950s Hollywood, and accompanied by Horace, her loquacious and disconcerting parrot, this intellectually-rigorous right-winger is blissfully unaware that U.S. academia is dominated by knee-jerk liberalism, contempt for Western civilization, and the institutionalization of a form of insane political correctness. Can Jack, the insensitive and tactless human battering-ram, defeat the thought-police who run Freeman State University like a gulag? Does she believe the late Provost was murdered? And will she manage to persuade Robert Amiss-who describes himself bitterly as Watson to her Holmes and Goodwin to her Nero Wolfe-to abandon his honeymoon and fly to her side? Historian and prize-winning biographer Ruth Dudley Edwards uses her knowledge of the British establishment in her satirical crime novels. Targets so far include the civil service, gentlemen's clubs, Cambridge colleges, the House of Lords, the Church of England, publishing, literary prizes and-always-political correctness. www.ruthdudleyedwards.com
