About this product
- Description<b>An intimately charged vel of desire and disaster from the author of <i>American Woman</i> and </b><i><b>A Person of Interest</b></i> Regina Gottlieb had been warned about Professor Nicholas Brodeur long before arriving as a graduate student at his prestigious university high on a pastoral hill. He s said to lie in the dark in his office while undergraduate women read couplets to him. He s condemned on the walls of the women s restroom, and enjoys films by Roman Polanski. But one has warned Regina about his exceptional physical beauty or his charismatic, volatile wife. <i>My Education</i> is the story of Regina s mistakes, which only begin in the bedroom, and end if they do fifteen years in the future and thousands of miles away. By turns erotic and completely catastrophic, Regina s misadventures demonstrate what can happen when the chasm between desire and duty is too wide to bridge.
