Conrad's first novel, much like Stephen McCauley's (. This book was fabulous! I couldn't put it down, loved every character and particularly the way all the stories intersected

Conrad's first novel, much like Stephen McCauley's (. The Man of the House, LJ 11/96) work maintains genuine regard for its protagonists and a keen appreciation for the foibles of modern relationships, gay and straight. Where Conrad differs, however, is in his farcical, sometimes far-fetched plot, which pits power-hungry poetry critic Vivian Reape against her protegee, Joanne Mueller, a professional at a small Chicago liberal arts college. This book was fabulous! I couldn't put it down, loved every character and particularly the way all the stories intersected. Conrad reminds me of Armisted Maupin, an author whom I adore.

I enjoyed the Chicago setting and the inner workings of poets and students in academia.

This book made me miss Chicago something awful! By Thriftbooks. com User, March 14, 2000. Not only is this book a smart and sharp take on the world of academic poetry, it is also a lovesong to Chicago. The city has never looked so lovely and so real on the page. It made me perfectly homesick.

The Yucca Mountain Project deep in the Nevada desert is the first planned long-term nuclear storage facility. The project is designed to contain nuclear waste for ten-thousand years, the amount of time it will take for the waste to no longer be radioactive. It is an ambitious project, especially in light of the fact that in this century alone we lacked the foresight to anticipate Y2K. Given this daunting responsibility, the project employs an artist, a botanist and an architect to contribute visual warnings to the site, in a manner decipherable to future generations. Conrad imagines an influential poetry professor who insists that the project also include a poem, a great poem, an epic poem. It is this poem that brings us to the center of an extended circle of minor poets who are continually upstaging, back-stabbing and falling in and out of love with one another. Set against the vibrant backdrop of Chicago, this is a story of science and poetry, manipulation and intrigue, and the lengths to which people will go for their passions.

Not only is this book a smart and sharp take on the world of academic poetry, it is also a lovesong to Chicago. The city has never looked so lovely and so real on the page. It made me perfectly homesick.

Witty, Bitchy, insighful, romantic. I LOVED this book!

Good work, James. An impressive first novel, but it could have been tightened up a bit. The story is in slight danger of bogging down under too many details. Still, a good, fast read with an interesting premise.

I'll have to admit when I picked this book up, I had my doubts, love and nuclear waste don't seem to be the best of combinations. My doubts were shortlived. It was with supream surprise and delight that I devoured Conrad's prose as swiftly as possible.
The cast of charactors in this book borders on epic. Conrad works a kind of magic as he gently weaves the stories of each of the many charactors into an interconected whole, leaving you wondering if life has an almost ironic order after all.

I went back and read the last 2 chapters again! There really is something for everyone here-I bought the book solely for the fact that I LOVE Chicago. The writers ability to weave a myriad of characters together, as well as creating sentences that actually stay with you long after you read them makes this a great book. I still don't know whether this book is a farce, a tragedy (for poetry,) or a romance. Lyrical, funny, smart and really down-to-earth.

I absolutely loved this book. It was both insightful and funny and I couldn't put it down. The writer has a unique, poetic style -- his descriptions flow beautifully. He reminds me of a more lighthearted James Dickey.

A fascinating, often hilarious, look at Academic life. Great characters and an unpredictable, involving plot make this a must-read. Would make a good film, too.
This book was fabulous! I couldn't put it down, loved every character and particularly the way all the stories intersected. Conrad reminds me of Armisted Maupin, an author whom I adore.
