If you think a university is simply an institution of higher learning, think again. When professor Andy Browne is fired from the University of St. Siven, his wife, Camille, asks one of Andy's colleagues, John Sladek, to find out why. From past experience, she knows Andy won't tell her the truth. Andy Browne's Departure, set in the small, fictitious Caribbean island of St. Siven, takes you through an intriguing maze of academia, love, sex, and secrecy in paradise. During the course of what becomes his last semester at St. Siven, the administration discovers that Dr. Browne does not to have a PhD in his field of study-he's a fraud. His involvement with his students-one in particular-contributes to his downfall, resulting in his subsequent firing by the president of the university. But will Camille ever know all the details about Andy's termination? Filled with passion and intrigue, Andy Browne's Departure opens up a Pandora's box of academia, where professors profess more than they teach, and students demand more of professors than they want to learn.
