Everyone at the large agricultural college dubbed Moo U. has an agenda. Whether it's massaging data, running secret experiments, or seducing the powerful, each person is dedicated to a plan. Meet Dr. Lionel Gift, who feels that his economic principles come directly from God. Visit with Earl Butz, who is being groomed to be the biggest hog in history. Mull over The Common Wisdom, what every secretary knows. As these agendas begin to collide, Moo trots toward a deliciously loony climax. Although Moo focuses a sharp eye on academia, its satire is tempered by loveable characters who ring absolutely true. Through narrator Suzanne Toren's performance, you'll soon feel like part of the lively herd at Moo U.

Jane Smiley, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Thousand Acres, instantly captured the admiration and laughter of readers everywhere when Moo was originally published. A New York Times best seller, it is a hilarious tour through the inner sanctums of a Midwestern university.

    " I actually laughed out loud at how astutely Jane Smiley captured university politics and dynamics, as well as the tragedies of college social life. Not one character comes out of this book unscathed. "

    " Tongue-in-cheek, right? Poking fun at university and farm life, right? Well, it wasn't so bad, it had its moments, I'm glad I was there but now I'm out. "

    " I never knew . . . this was the first of my mom's I ever read. She's amazing, and you should buy it. "

    " A University epic...now I've seen everything. The only other Smiley I've read is "The Greenlanders" and it is amazing how different these two books are. Smiley has an amazing range, and I'm sure I'd only be more amazed if I got further into her sizeable list. This book is impressive in scope and is both imaginative and carefully developed. I'd still call it an epic, and I'm not the biggest fan of those, but it is definitely enjoyable. "
