'Almost 40 years ago, Crews mocked post-war academic fashions in The Pooh Perplex, a set of scholarly essays on A A Milne's great bear. Now bear and dons are back for a fresh dose of pin-sharp...A guilty treat for all survivors of Post 1970's arts degrees.' Boyd Tonkin. The Independent 'Fred Crews is a Person of Very Great Brain. What he pooh-Poohs, deserves it. Reading this book actually makes me grateful that I toil in the jargon-choked fields of psychology instead of the impenetrably murky caverns of literary criticism. But literary criticism is luckier than psychology: It has Fred Crews to light the way.' Carol Tarvis 'If literary theory can generate a book as funny as 'Postmodern Pooh', you have to love it.' Elaine Showalter in the London Review of Books 'A brilliant and savagely witty skewering of the combatants on all sides of the academic culture wars...Pitch-perfect lampoons...This is the last academic satire you'll ever need to read.' The Washington Post
