At the heart of this striking collection is the title work: a candid and wrenching exploration of Castle's relationship, during her graduate school years, with a female professor. At once hilarious and rueful, it is a pitch-perfect recollection of the fiascos of youth: how we come to own (or disown) our sexuality; how we understand (or fail to) the emotional needs and wishes of others; how the ordeals of desire can prompt a lifelong search for self-understanding. With The Professor: And Other Writings Terry Castle cements her reputation as a truly remarkable writer: distinctive, wise, frank, incredibly funny and utterly fearless.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Castle is a wonderfully dauntless writer. Her prose is witty and energetic, and strung with brilliant insights. These essays are provocative and fresh, and have an addictive quality... they are enormously pleasurable to read.' * Edmund Gordon, Sunday Times *
'This is a delightful book, to be read and reread.' * New York Times Book Review *
'Do not take Terry Castle to bed if you plan on getting any sleep. I keep trying to savor The Professor, her memoirs of love and friendship in the academy. It's like trying to savor cocaine.' * Lorin Stein, Editor of the Paris Review *
