About this title:
Synopsis:
In the heat of September, and the heady rush of starting her graduate degree, Regina Gottlieb is entranced by her seductive, controversial English professor, Nicholas Brodeur. Against all advice, she becomes embroiled in his world, only to betray him in a passionate love affair with the person closest to him. Their romance destroys the equilibrium of all those around them, and threatens to capsize their lives, as Regina and her lover struggle to bridge the gap between duty and desire, obsession and self-preservation. Only years later, when Regina - by now a married mother and bestselling novelist living in Brooklyn - crosses paths again with Nicholas, do we see the full impact of her first, devastating love. My Education is a classic coming-of-age novel with a delicious twist - one of the most intoxicating stories of erotic obsession fused with literary style to emerge in a long time.

Review:
An Amazon Best Book of the Month, July 2013: You could say Susan Choi’s My Education is a novel of the academy, in which an impressionable graduate student has an affair with an older, charismatic professor; that’s a fair--if misleading and incomplete--description. My Education is more surprising than that because a) the professor with whom the heroine sleeps is not the one you might expect and b) the book is full of pithy observations you can’t stop nodding at, and writing you can’t help underlining. “You’re twenty-one! Do you know what I’d give to be that age again?” Regina’s older lover cries in exasperation. “Do you know what I’d give if you’d stop saying that?” Regina replies. Or: “We sprang into flight like the arrow released from the bow,” Choi writes, when the lovers are discovered nearly in flagrante. Full of brilliantly drawn supporting characters--Regina’s hippie stoner roommate who goes by his surname is a favorite--this sophisticated book is about sophisticated people who may be brainy about arts and letters but are closer to clueless when it comes to the complex affairs of the heart. -- Sara Nelson

Book Description: Short Books. 1 Paperback(s), 2013. soft. Book Condition: New. (Winner of a 2013 Lambda Literary Award) In the heat of September, and the heady rush of starting her graduate degree, Regina Gottlieb is entranced by her seductive, controversial English professor Nicholas Brodeur, in this fourth novel from the author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist American Woman. Against all advice, Regina becomes embroiled in Nicholas's world, and then betrays him in a passionate love affair with the person closest to him. Only years later, when Regina—now a married mother and bestselling novelist—crosses paths again with Nicholas, do we see the full impact of her first, devastating love."A raw, wild, hurtling foray into the tangled realms of sexuality and self-knowledge."—Jennifer Egan"[Susan Choi] has never sounded smarter or wittier than she does in her fourth novel. Few other writers alive today make their sentences work so hard. Try skimming these paragraphs too fast and you'll cut yourself on the sharpened edges of her prose."—Washington Post 395.
