Steve McIlhenny is a rotten teacher, habitual drunkard, born contrarian and not least a young white male trying to forge a career in the affirmative-action environment and politically-correct atmosphere of American academe in the 1990s. He drifts from one job to another, one woman to the other, one bottle to the next and travels beyond U.S. borders to Berlin, Paris, Madrid, Egypt and Israel where his trials persist and he continues to clash with the academic establishment. Written with McAleer's trademark humor and verve, POSTDOC is the uncompromising account of an itinerant scholar and his life on the edge of professional oblivion.
