a desirable read

by jeffrey r on Jul 17, 2010

The Professor of Desire by Philip Roth is certainly worth the read. It continues to explore the sexuality that is developed in Portnoys Complaint but does so on a more intricate, complex and sophisticated level. In a word, more maturely in both style and substance. The novel moves quickly is full of comprehensive, yet not overindulgent character development and takes the reader on fine and fun ride through the narration of the novel. I highly recommend the novel to anyone just discovering Roth or wanting to go a bit further in their discover of him as a writer. An excellent novel dealing apltly with human sexuality and its many complex nuances.
