One of 18 breakthrough novels this season. MediaBookBub.Com
Emily Addams, foodie professor of women's studies at Arbor State--a land grant university in Northern California--finds herself an unlikely suspect in the poisoning of a man she barely knows: Professor Peter Elliott of Plant Biology, the hotshot developer of a new genetically modified corn.

How did her cornbread end up in his hand as he lay in the smelly muck of a pig's pen?

As Emily and her colleagues try to identify who and what has poisoned Peter, they also struggle to keep a new and corporate-minded administration from defunding the women's and ethnic studies programs.

In the process of solving the mystery, Emily and her network deepen their ties to each other--and uncover some of the dark secrets of a university whose traditionally communal values are being polluted by a wave of profit-fueled ideals.

Oink comes with recipes.

"It has been said that the comic campus novel is no more (things in higher education are verging on the tragic), but Oink proves otherwise."
--Maggie Berg and Barbara K. Seeber, authors of The Slow Professor: Challenging the Culture of Speed in the Academy
