The Real Pissant!

In case the Chronicle of Higher Education isn’t on your regular reading list, reviewer Carlin Romano--in a thoughtful rave for one of editor Jeff Pierce’s favorite novels of 2006, Critique of Criminal Reason, by Michael Gregorio, which co-stars German philosopher Immanuel Kant of Monty Python musical fame--gives away the author’s secret identity.
“And here’s the final irony. Although the publisher identifies Gregorio as a professor of philosophy who lives in Italy, a little detective work reveals ‘Gregorio’--according to Leslie Gardner, the book’s English agent--to be a pen name for an incognito Italian-English couple who live in Spoleto.”
