Dear Librarians,

This my first novel for adults. (I've a selected poems — an ALA Notable Book — and have written twenty-five children's books.) It's a comic account of postwar 1946 at St. Cassian's College, named for a medieval teacher whose students stabbed him to death with their pens.

Overnight the tiny school has expanded to 4,000, and the Newark Mafia find it a handy front for a racket. The story involves a seventeen-year-old nerd, a slightly alcoholic priest, and a mobster mistress.
