Roger Rosenblattâs dazzling comic gifts are on enviable display....Beet will settle the issue: is Roger Rosenblatt our most audacious comic visionary,or our most audacious visionary comic?ââJoyce Carol Oates
Beet College is doomed...and nobody really cares. The Board of Trustees, led by developer Joel Bollovate, has squandered the endowment. Debutante-cum-self-styled-poet Matha Polite, an indiscriminate radical with a four-student following, wants to bring the institution down. Sweet-tempered terrorist hopeful Akim Ben Ladin (nÃ© Arthur Horowitz) sits in his off-campus cave and dreams about blowing Beet up. Faculty members are too busy concocting useless, trendy courses to do anything about it. Not to mention that American higher education is going down the tubes, one less lesser school isnât going to matter. So why is Professor Peace Porterfield trying to save Beet? Beats us.
âRosenblatt [applies] his sharp wit to elite education.ââWall Street Journal
About: Dedicating himself to saving Beet College when its board of trustees squanders its endowment, Professor Peace Porterfield finds his efforts challenged by a radical poet, a terrorist hopeful, and infighting among faculty members.
