Product description


"In its play with language, "The Clan of the Flapdragon" is simultaneously a celebration of language- a tribute to the power of the word and the vital role of literacy in our culture. McKee delights in reminding us that language is not solely the tool of advertisers, politicians, literary theorists, or other extremists." Stanley W. Lindberg, Editor, "The Georgia Review""


The pseudonymous critic featured in this book satirizes a variety of subjects in and out of academe. It includes lampoons on writing, language, and literature in a spoof of contemporary culture.
