Book Description
 

VISITING PROFESSOR, THE by Robert Littell - SIGNED FIRST EDITION THUS BOOK

See all titles by Robert Littell.

Lemuel Falk, "a Russian theoretical chaoticist on the lam from terrestrial chaos," has been applying for permission to leave Russia every year for the past twenty-three years. Because he knows state secrets, he has not been allowed to cross the state's frontiers. Now, suddenly, his request for an exit visa is approved -- a sure sign that the situation is even more chaotic than he had imagined.

Falk accepts a chair as a visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Interdisciplinary Chaos-Related Studies in upstate New York. Arriving in the Promised Land under the impression that the streets are paved with Sony Walkmans, he plunges into the heart of another kind of chaos. No sooner has he arrived than he sets off on an academic cat fight, falls in love with a hairdresser half his age, and becomes a self-styled gumshoe tracking a serial killer.

In one of his most original novels, Littell explores the relationships between randomness and God, chaos and sex, a butterfly tattoo and occasional rain, the going and the getting there. The Visiting Professor is a delicious post-Cold War romp through a chaotic contemporary America.
