ABOUT THE BOOK
This is a story of a university professor who becomes severely apprehensive as retirement from academia approaches. He fears that his lifetime of study will be for naught when he steps away from the podium. The professor’s imagination invents an alter ego in the form of a Heidelberg-educated professor who just happens to be a coyote. With their inflated egos at full mast, the two professors clash, debate, and insult each other throughout an outrageous dream sequence extending over several years. In the end, rationality prevails and the two professors accept retirement as a “natural consequence” of academic life and part as friends.
