The Philandering Professor | by Adam Kirsch | The New York Review of BooksWelcome sign in sign up. Novels about middle-aged male college professors brought low by love affairs with their female students are so numerous, by now, as to constitute a genre of their own. That there can be an erotic dimension to the teacher—student relationship is not exactly news—just look at Socrates and Alcibiades; and that such relationships can be perilous, Abelard and Heloise testify graphically. But when we look at characters like David Lurie, in J. That fascination is, if anything, overdetermined. It makes perfect sense that when many writers spend their careers as college professors, they will end up making professors their protagonists. And the movement of creative writers into the academy happened to coincide with a sea change in sexual mores.

Nothing is more intriguing in a romance novel than when things get truly complicated, and exploring taboos can turn an otherwise run-of-the-mill story into something much more titillating. Eighteen-year-old Layken is less than thrilled when her mother moves the family to Michigan after the death of their father. Things begin to look up upon arriving to her new home and meeting year old neighbor Will Cooper. Their connection is immediate and Layken is drawn to his intriguing passion for slam poetry and his easygoing manner. After an intense first date that has Layken feeling like things could be okay in her new home, Will and Layken are shaken to the core to find out that he is her teacher. Their daily interactions become pained as they struggle to reconcile the intense feelings they have for one another and the situation that must keep them apart. This story is so much more than a student-teacher romance.
