For the last eight years, Brian Fitzgerald Murphy has called
Southern California home. Now, this engineer, who graduated from
the University of Notre Dame and later earned an MBA, is looking to
leave the West Coast to be closer to his roots and his family in
the East. Murphy ditches both his surfboard and the business world
to join the staff at Appalachian University in Corinth. On the
surface, Corinth, a charming town with old Victorian houses nestled
in the forested mountain slopes of Appalachia, appears to be
idyllic. But the more he becomes acquainted, the more jaded he
becomes. Murphy learns quickly to navigate life in a small college
town with a binge-drinking problem. There are lessons to be learned
everywhere-from the dating scene, the party life, and the stress of
its job and its expectations. While exploring social issues ranging
from class consciousness, sexual identity, nationalism, racism, and
religion, "In an Appalachian College Town" captures the
off-the-wall grad student shenanigans that balance the more serious
aspects of university life.
