Description

Memories of college have intruded on Bernard Kennisbaum's mind with increasing regularity. It is his junior year, and Bernard declares himself free of his father's financial claws, free to follow his Muse. A beguiling beauty, Apryl, has caught his eye, and her scent leads him into a lecture hall that will change his life. His unwitting arrival in a Great Books class--The Humanities Integration Program--devolves into a wild west showdown with a trigger-happy prof, ambitious administrators, jealous colleagues, vengeful state officials, hoodlums, and hangover hippies. Lured in by poetry, Plato, and female pheromones, Bernard discovers an unlikely collegiate underworld dedicated to rescuing Western civilization from soulless purveyors of the bottom line. The trouble is, Bernard doesn't know which side he is on, and he soon learns he may not know everything about his family or himself. In Mount Wonder, two cultures collide and roll into one rip-roaring adventure of love and learning. Based on true events at a major university, this novel will make you question your world and the world of higher education.

Advance Praise

"Scott J. Bloch's Mount Wonder takes a group of college students on a wild ride borne on the wings of classic literature and poetry but buffeted by the contrary winds of relativism and administrative arrogance. It is a witty, clever, and funny novel, yet also serious in its search for the ancient foundations of beauty and truth." --Steven Faulkner, author of The Image: A Novel in Pieces

"Mount Wonder tells an important story of how a small group of students and teachers resisted and overcame the destruction of true liberal arts education. The obstacles and the ostracism they faced is still being used to squash individual and collective efforts to repeat their success. Mount Wonder contains a message that should be a guide to the future of education."--Deal W. Hudson, Host of Church and Culture, Ave Maria Radio Network
