Summary

Professor Mark Sternum returns in Downing's follow-up to his critically acclaimed Perfect Agreement. The protagonist, a gay man, is in love with his work and in love with the classroom, wholly devoted to his students. But while estranged from his lifelong partner, a university departmental "crisis" occurs as the department chair challenges Mark's grade for a student. This is a gentle comic novel of domestic life and manners, written with extraordinary grace and subtlety. 
Perfect Agreement was a Boston Globe bestseller
Long time readers of Downing will be enchanted and readers new to his work will be delighted
 Novel eligible for Lambda Literary Awards, and author will be pitched to Lambda annual festival
The author, himself a professor of creative writing, believes deeply in the importance of the classroom experience and the magic (and drama) that can occur there. So he wrote a novel to celebrate and explore this premise
