Publisher's Summary

The National Book Award finalist from acclaimed New York Times best-selling author Francine Prose - now the major motion picture Submission.

It's been years since Swenson, a professor in a New England creative-writing program, has published a novel. It's been even longer since any of his students have shown promise. Enter Angela Argo, a pierced, tattooed student with a rare talent for writing. Angela is just the thing Swenson needs. Better yet, she wants his help. But, as we all know, the road to hell is paved with good intentions....

Deliciously risque, Blue Angel is a withering take on today's academic mores and a scathing tale that vividly shows what can happen when academic politics collide with political correctness.

Critic Reviews

“Screamingly funny.... Blue Angel culminates in a sexual harassment hearing that rivals the Salem witch trials.” (USA Today)

She writes mysteriously but poetic , beautiful narration , not a book for everyone but for those that love Kafka it will endure .
