March 21, 2007

During the spring semester, Penn State University Park's new Center for America Literary Studies is sponsoring a "community read." The novel you should pick up is The Intuitionist, a social allegory in a city of the future where the sprawl is up, not out, and two guilds of Elevator Inspectors, the Empiricists and the Intutionists, compete.
