“Lionel Shriver is a vastly talented writer. . . . This book deserves to be read.” – Kansas City Star
An outstanding debut novel about the romantic education of a 59-year-old anthropologist who falls in love with a young student.

Lionel Shriver is now one of my favorite authors, the ones I check for new books and order practically blindfolded. This book was great! I first read "We Have To Talk About Kevin", then this book, and lastly "The Post Birthday World" What I love, beyond the fantastic plots and awesome writing, is that each book is different. Each book is dynamic, so good I hate to finish but can't put down. I am a picky reader and Lionel Shriver is up so many notches I have no worry about any other of her books. When I saw there had been no review of this book I had to write a review. This book is much too good and deserves attention. Fairly outrageous story here but if you are picky like me, get this book, cancel plans for the next couple of days and read... I'd write more, but I am looking for my next Lionel Shriver book. Bye.
