Critics call OU prof's book "quirky"
(2008-03-24)
(WOUB) - The book "Between Panic and Desire" has been called "quirky," and the man who wrote it does not disagree.

The author is Dinty Moore, a professor of English at Ohio University, and he says some of the stories he tells are strange.

The book has been out for a couple of weeks.

It's a memoir and the title comes from two towns in Pennsylvania near Punxatawney.

The "quirky" label comes from "Publishers Weekly," which also calls "Between Panic and Desire" an "entertaining joyride."

Another reviewer calls it "frequently very funny" and "insightful."
