Publisher Description

"An academic novel and a novel of ideas, served up cheerfully and heroically by a very talented writer who doesn't care if both these genres are out of fashion . . .You shouldn't either."

—Ptolemy Tompkins, author of The Modern Book of the Dead

AMAZON REVIEWS:
"Literary humor at its best." —Petra Barnett"...the book is a sort of love letter to philosophy, Plato in particular." —Mike Smith"You don't have to know Plato to enjoy it, but you will discover something of Plato in reading it..." —Laura Stevens

A Footnote to Plato takes place in 2012 at a tiny liberal arts college in Vermont.

A senior philosophy professor finds himself embroiled in a student drama that leads to a false accusation of sexual harassment and an investigation intended to force him out. He faces a disgraceful end to his long career unless he retires immediately. But he refuses to be, as his students like to say, an epic failure.

A promising math student resorts to dealing coke to pay for college. What he really needs is a bit of luck.

The professor and student meet in the Maintenance Committee and soon form a Socrates-Plato bond. When the professor decides to take him and a small group of students to Greece to film an online lecture series, it's an opportunity of a lifetime for the student, and the professor's last chance to save his reputation—and maybe leave behind a legacy.
