The Professor Will See You Now takes the reader on a journey into a depressed mind fortified by expert fieldwork in our everyday apocalyptic world. The result is a uniquely construed and no doubt politically incorrect perspective on the contemporary zeitgeist. Over the course of five stories and an equal number of essays, the reader encounters the tragic apotheosis of positive psychology, love of learning and unlearning, homages to Jane Smiley and Richard Rodriquez, as well as tales of trekking and travel, cinema, and crime (both true and untrue).
By the last lines, the reader might be forgiven if they were less certain what in the preceding constituted fact and fiction or whether such elementary distinctions should be permitted to survive the machinations of intellectually rigorous and morally forthcoming literature. The Professor Will See You Now is critical, not cynical; the difference is vital.
