The Wodehouse of our meritocratic times? That’s a stretch, although I can see hints of that humor, tinged with a caustic blackness that doesn’t offer much room for redemption. Still, a very funny writer, and lead character Milo Burke is hard to ignore, with his “freewheeling wisdom of the loser”. Some pretty nasty stuff on the future of liberal arts education too; can it all hang together just a few more years before the collapse!?
