More About the Author

El Muy Lorenzo is a former American academic. He was born and grew up on the East Coast and attended university in the Bay Area. He taught there and in the Mid-West for most of his career. He is a distinguished scholar and has published widely in the scientific literature. LIFE IN ACADEMIA, The El Muy Lorenzo Stories is Lorenzo's humorous satire of academic life and its cast of self-important characters. It shows how a group-culture, whether academic or in another workplace, frequently discriminates against anyone who is different and persecutes them, as Christ was persecuted, for implicitly challenging established social norms. It is also a treatise on paranoia that asks whether paranoia in one area of a person's life necessarily clouds that person's understanding of all aspects of social reality.

"The Legend..." is the major work in this series. " A Brief Guide to El Muy Lorenzo" is a very short explanation of that more complex work. "The Legend Quiz" affords the reader an opportunity to test their knowledge of "The Legend..." book and offers humorous insights into the mind and teaching methods of El Muy Lorenzo.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The best satire of academia is in the novels of David Lodge. This book is a pathetic attempt which is funny for about five pages and then drags. Muy crappo!
