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 no one warned Regina about his exceptional physical beauty—or his charismatic, volatile wife. My Education is the story of Regina's mistakes, which 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A raw, wild, hurtling foray into the tangled realms of sexuality and self-knowledge..” Jennifer Egan, New York Times bestselling author
“Gets top marks for slyly re-inventing the affaire de l’académie in My Education.” Vanity Fair
“This smart exploration of bisexuality follows a series of relationships and sexual encounters that explore the complexity of the characters’ desires.” New York Times
“A scorching hot read…a chaise-lounge literary page-turner par excellence: sexy, smart, well plotted, jammed with observations witty and profound, and so well written it occasionally leaves you gasping.” Newsday
“Explores a young heart and its painfully naïve and bold ways…It’s The Graduate meets The L Word meets the Carey Mulligan flick An Education.” Marie Claire
“Elegantly written…[Choi is] a graceful, perceptive writer.” New York Times Book Review
“A smart and witty novel about college life…Choi gives this worn setup all the nubile energy of a new school year.” Washington Post
“Captivating…In intimate, erotic detail, the novel tackles the brutality of love and how an innocuous flirtation can become an all-consuming affair.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Both erotic and literary.” New York magazine
My Education…establishes how good a novelist Choi has become.” Harper’s
“A deeply human tale of intentional mistakes, love and lust, and the search for a clearer vision of one’s self.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Captures the heady romanticism that infuses a youthful love affair before the responsibilities and realities of adulthood set in. This is a masterful coming-of-age novel.” Booklist
“Dark and stormy…Choi keeps the moments between her characters believable while building momentum toward the illicit lovers’ inevitable falling-out.” Publishers Weekly
