What an odd little book this is. It's a bit horror, a lot bit satire, and a little slice of dystopian life of a current humanities academic. Edith Vane works at U of I and her job is supposed to be safe, what with tenure and all, but the new dean is evil, her colleague has gone mysteriously missing, and Crawley Hall, her building, seems to have developed sentience and is trying to kill everyone inside it. I admired but didn't always enjoy this novel. It was often painful to see things just keep getting worse for Edith, especially the situation with her flaky girlfriend. I do enjoy how it metaphorically and actually shows how academia can be truly horrific for women of colour.
