The Bourbaki Gambit by Carl Djerassi

At the age of 68, distinguished Princeton science professor Max Weiss is bribed into taking an early retirement. He takes an ingenious revenge in the form of Doctor Diana Skordylis--a pseudonym for a partnership among Weiss and three aging colleagues. Their soaring success is unanticipated and professional jealousy soon threatens Diana Skordyliss life. A beautifully ingenious, funny, brilliantly inteligent and moving tale of very human scientists. A splendid novel.--Iris Murdoch.
