For Professor Sherman Klump, being the big man on campus wasn''t all it''s cracked up to be. His body was disproportionate. His family was dysfunctional. And his love life was disastrous.

This new personality gives Sherman the confidence to pursue the chemistry department''s beautiful new professor, Carla Purty. Indeed everything, to Sherman''s utter amazement, is beyond his most perfect dreams--until he discovers that his long-lasting creation is actually an unstable substance that can wear off at any time.

A brilliant and respected criminal psychologist, Dr. Miranda Grey is an expert at knowing what is rational. What is logical. What is sane. Under the direction of her husband, the chief administrator of the psychiatric ward at the Woodward Penitentiary for Women, Miranda treats dangerously disturbed patients like Chl , an intensely charismatic murderess whose confessions of satanic torture are dismissed by the judicious doctor as the psychotic meanderings of a paranoid mind.
