Novels about Academia

I just finished On Beauty by Zadie Smith. It reminded me that my little professional world makes a good backdrop for novels. Others that I have liked include Moo by Jane Smiley, Gaudy Night by Dorothy Sayers, most novels by Robertson Davis, and Talk Talk by TC Boyle.

The economics professor in Moo hits a little to close to home for me sometimes; among Davis' stuff, I especially like the Lyre of Orpheus.
