Book Summary

Welcome to the insane and rarefied world of Professor Dr Moritz-Maria con Igelfeld of the Institute of Romance Philology.  Von Igelfeld is engaged in a never-ending quest to win the respect he feels certain he is due--a quest which has the tendency to go hilariously astray.

In The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs, Professor Dr von Igelfeld is mistaken for a veterinarian, and not wanting to call attention to the faux pas, begins practicing veterinary medicine without a license.  He ends up operating on a friend's dachshund to dramatic and unfortunate effect.  He also transports relics for a schismatically challenged Coptic prelate and is pursued by marriage-minded widows on board a Mediterranean cruise ship.
