Hume's Fork
By
Price: $9.99 USD. Words: 100,710. Language: English. Published: November 18, 2009 by Bancroft Press. Category: Fiction » Literature » Literary
A comic drama about philosophy, family, religion, and, of course, professional wrestling. Barely adequate philosophy professor Legare Hume has a mind-body problem. No matter how far he goes, no matter how hard he thinks, he can’t escape the world he lives in. Hume’s Fork is a brilliantly satirical and philosophical novel, every bit as funny as it is intelligent—a true original.
