The Professor and Other Writings

Terry Castle

"[Terry Castle is] the most expressive, most enlightening literary critic at large today." -Susan Sontag From one of America's most brilliant critics and cultural commentators, Terry Castle, comes The Professor and Other Writings: a collection of startling, gorgeously-written autobiographical essays and a new, long-form piece about the devastation and beauty of early love. James Wolcott, contributing writer to Vanity Fair, calls Terry Castle a "Jedi knight of literary exploration and lesbian scholarship," and The Professor and Other Writings "a greatest-hits package of show-stopping monologues and offhand-genius riffs." The Professor and Other Writings is a hilarious and heartbreaking exploration of gender, identity, and sexuality in the grand tradition of such feminist luminaries as Susan Sontag, Camille Paglia, and Joan Didion.
