About the book:

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 womens magazines and lives comfortably with anthropologist Tom Mallowalthough shes starting to wonder if theyll ever get married. Then Tom drops his bombshell: Hes leaving her for nineteen-year-old student Deirdre Swan. Though stunned by Toms 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. Its also a poignant and playful riff on the messy mating habits of humans and the traits that separate us from our anthropological forebearsfar fewer than we may imagine.
