Small World

Small World tells the tale of Persse McGarrigle and his pursuit of the beautiful Angelica, as well as the quests of professors, critics and academic hangers-on for their various brass rings. Set in literary conferences held at universities, Small World finds Persse flying all over the world after Angelica as she goes from conference to conference, culminating at the annual MLA conference in New York. Almost equally important, however, is the political jockeying among professors and critics for the UNESCO chair of Literary Theory, which involves no work and pays $100,000, tax-free.
