The Professor of Desire
Publisher: Vintage Books
As a student in college, David Kepesh styles himself “ a rake among scholars, a scholar among rakes.” Little does he realize how prophetic this motto will be— or how damning. For as Philip Roth follows Kepesh from the domesticity of childhood into the vast wilderness of erotic possibility, from a me nage a trois in London to the throes of loneliness in New York, he creates a supremely intelligent, affecting, and often hilarious novel about the dilemma of pleasure: where we seek it; why we flee it; and how we struggle to make a truce between dignity and desire.
