Mustang Sally

Posted on

This often hilarious satire on political correctness features Packard Schmidt, 48, a seedy, divorced English professor at a third-rate Indiana college dominated by trendy lefties and religious fundamentalists. Schmidt periodically escapes to the casinos of Las Vegas, and when he finds one of his prettiest ex-students working nearby as a prostitute, he succumbs to temptation, causing his career to unravel. Edward Allen’s Mustang Sally suffers from plot contrivances and an underdeveloped female character, but Schmidt’s angry narrative voice is almost pleasure enough. B+
