"Carrying the card by its extreme corner, George brings it over to one of the secretaries, who will see that it gets back to Personnel. The secretary has a nail-file on her desk. George picks it up, saying, 'Let's see if that old robot'll know the difference' and pretends to be about to punch another slit in the card. The girl laughs, but only after a split-second look of sheer terror; and the laugh itself is forced. George has uttered blasphemy" (S. 31).
Kann mir jemand weitere Bücher empfehlen, die im britischen oder amerikanischen Universitätsumfeld angesiedelt sind? Die David Lodge-Trilogie Changing Places / Small World / Nice Work hat mir auch gut gefallen.
