Product Description

Pewter Stapelton is drowning under a pile of marking. He teaches creative writing at a university in Sheffield, a campus peopled with malign cost-cutting accountants, baffled security staff and colleagues cloning themselves. As a novel about life and writing, factuality and invention rub shoulders to hilarious effect as Pewter is incessantly driven to turn his experiences, his friends and their experiences into works of drama and fiction.

Format: Paperback
Professor Markham was my tutor at Sheffield Hallam University upon which this novel is partially based. The story centres around the life and times of an English professor in Sheffield, his frustrations with his students, bureaucracy and life in general. Almost every sentence is packed with literary and cultural references. Indeed the novel sometimes makes one feel a little inferior as Markham's caustic wit and knowledge bounce around the pages and straight into your head. Did I mention the book is very funny? Be irritated, be baffled, be fascinated. Mark my words etc....
