Dubbed “Professor Marvel,” a popular black male professor at a
predominantly white, women’s college who freaks when a radical
feminist compares him to the Kansas charlatan turned Wizard of Oz. His
dubiousness is confirmed when he succumbs to the charms of a student, an
aspiring fashion model.
Meanwhile, he keeps a secret affair with an older feminist colleague. The
she-it hits the fan when her estranged husband becomes jealous and
challenges him to a fistfight. Certain he’ll be blamed when the old
man’s pacemaker explodes, Professor Marvel takes flight.
His prior indiscretion eventually catches up to him when he discovers the
fashion model exploits a sex tape as her steppingstone to fame.
The Black List says, “Professor Marvel is an outside-the-box and
thought-provoking read that keeps the reader in anticipation of what’s to
come over the course of the story.”
