Summary
With deadpan humor, Work pokes fun at his own naïveté in this memoir of his rookie years teaching at a small college in a small, mostly Mormon town. He tells how he navigated the sometimes tricky process of being an outsider in this fish-out-of-water tale.--P. [4] of cover
Summary
Fresh out of school in the mid-1960s, author James Work, a non-Mormon, or Gentile as Mormons would say, taught at the College of Southern Utah, located in a small, isolated Mormon town called Cedar City. These humorous narrative essays describe his unexpected encounters there and show how he coped as an outsider. The author has published other works of memoir and poetry.
