Charlene Fix, associate professor and chair of English & Philosophy at CCAD, received a book contract from McFarland, an independent publisher of academic and nonfiction books.
Fix started working on her manuscript Harpo Marx as Trickster: Why We Laugh, Why We Love Him, Why He Seems Divine 10 years ago, and she finished her first draft last summer. She hopes to have the book published within a year.
The manuscript asserts that the literary character Harpo Marx captures the complexity and disruption needed to be considered a literary trickster.
Fix has been presenting her book proposal at various conferences throughout the last year, including most recently the C.G. Jung Association of Central Ohio, a community center in Columbus.
