This classic novel holds the mirror up to human nature and the battle between the sexes as it explores the love lives of a group of anthropologists Catherine Oliphant writes for women & rsquo;s magazines and lives comfortably with anthropologist Tom Mallow & mdash;although she & rsquo;s starting to wonder if they & rsquo;ll ever get married. Then Tom drops his bombshell: He & rsquo;s leaving her for nineteen-year-old student Deirdre Swan. Though stunned by Tom & rsquo;s betrayal, Catherine quickly becomes fascinated by another anthropologist, Alaric Lydgate, a reclusive eccentric recently returned from Africa. As Catherine starts to weigh her options she gradually realizes who she is and what she really wants. With its lively cast of characters, Less Than Angels is an incisive social satire that opens a window onto the insular world of academia. It & rsquo;s also a poignant and playful riff on the messy mating habits of humans and the traits that separate us from our anthropological forebears & mdash;far fewer than we may imagine.
