Oh, she s funny Her eighty one year old mother still spends an hour every morning putting her face on, with predictably fantastical, Isak Dinesen like results Castle s stepfamily was grim and horrible, and everything she writes about them makes me laugh even her description of the short nasty life and shotgun suicide of her hooker beating sociopath stepbrother, Jeff I think of Jeff as someone who had no language, or no language other than brutality Not that he couldn t read or write, on a primit [...]

A fag hag is a straight woman who enjoys the company of gay men Even I know that But what do you call a straight guy who digs lesbians There s got to be a slang term for that, right Whatever it is, I think I might be one Not that I have a lot of lesbian friends or anything, but at parties I tend to hit it off with outspoken, crop haired women with alarming neckties I just have a good rapport with them for some reason Of course, I also have a good rapport with elderly ladies, pre pubescent girls [...]

The best memoir critique hybrid I have ever read Ever will read Ever Could be mean, as Castle calls herself, if it weren t so painfully honest and self deprecating Includes one very uncomfortable dinner with Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson, Susan Sontag dodging imaginary sniper fire on a boutique street in Palo Alto, and one nude, very high and very handsome Art Pepper deliriously admiring himself in a mirror The tenderness between lesbians and straight men, writes Castle, is the real love that dar [...]

I didn t finish this book Normally I would feel the obsessive need to, but because it is a collection of essays I feel it s OK to put it down after having finished three and perhaps return to it later I liked it, but not enough to read the essays in which the subject matter itself doesn t intrigue me.I began with the first essay in the book, Castle on her obsession with World War 1 It was OK, it s usually fun to read about someone s obsession with something, but there were also a lot of unnecess [...]

I have a weakness for academic memoirs, and I ve also been something of a fan of Castle s writing for quite a while This is a collection of essays that merge the scholarly and the personal in a way I wish academic writing did or, accurately, they show how the scholarly develops out of the personal The long title essay, The Professor, recounts Castle s disastrous grad school love affair with a considerably older professor parts of it had me wincing and nodding in half pained, half amused recogn [...]

Unbelievable I picked this book up because I knew the author was going to give a reading here at City Lights, just meaning to skim it, to get an impression of her writing I started with the memoir within the book, The Professor , and didn t put it down until three hours later The author obviously had to tell this story it rushes out of her almost conversationally, with both passion and an awe at her own youthful naivete A devastating work Jeff

This book was recommended to me by a leading tax scholar and the editor of Feminist Rental Property Management Studies.

I absolutely loved this Castle writes beautifully and her voice self a deprecating, observant, intelligent yet with obvious affection for popular culture is immensely appealing There s a range of topics here, all interesting, but the main essay, which takes up half the book, provides a fascinating insight into 1970s feminism and US Campus life Yet still manages to reference Little Britain.

Terry Castle is a professor of humanities at Stanford and an out lesbian with an engaging approach to an eclectic array of subjects Her better known works include The Apparitional Lesbian Female Homosexuality and Modern Culture and N el Coward and Radclyffe Hall Kindred Spirits, a brilliant little study of mutual influence between two early 20th century writers who have each been reclaimed as part of a homoerotic literary past, but who are rarely mentioned on the same page The Professor and Othe [...]

Have you ever started to read a book and realized that it brought you a bit out of your comfort zone and frankly, was a bit over your head This was one of those for me I stuck with it though and it provoked many thoughts, feelings, and useful tidbits.Terry Castle was once described by Susan Sontag as the most expressive, most enlightening literary critic at large today She is the author of seven books of criticism, including The Apparitional Lesbian Female Homosexuality and Modern Culture 1993 a [...]

It took a few essays before I warmed up to Castle s voice, but I began to sit up a little straighter with the Susan Sontag piece Desperately Seeking Susan and threw off the blanket with Travels with My Mother, a travel diary of their New Mexico trip Castle is funny and self deprecating and smart Yet at some point during our remaining days, a lot of the daughter angst starts to drop away Like some frantic, dusty, overturned bug, I finally stop waving my many legs about and lie still I wait, I dec [...]

This is a book of lucid, original, sharply funny and intellectually exciting essays by a writer whose work I hadn t previously known though I was aware of her highly regarded scholarly work In this book, Terry Castle takes a break from the academic writing she s been known for, and though the writing remains at a very high level keep a dictionary nearby there s also a looseness around language and an openness of emotion that makes for a very appealing, juicy read.Here she turns her gaze on hers [...]

Often depressing, but always crisp and tart, like a Granny Smith apple Terry Castle has been punched by the world and gotten up againd keeps going I like her writing so much I ordered her book of essays on women and sex without reading reviews on here first I NEVER buy without consulting GR first now It s not so much about pain it s just that her tone can be dreary even when she s making you laugh She s brilliant and she makes sure you notice I have a list of works of art I want to track down be [...]

Terry Castle is an esteemed literary critic, but this is a book of memoirs Half the book is composed of shorter pieces about her obsession with World War I, her obsession with jazz saxophonist Art Pepper, her travels in Sicily, her obsession with Susan Sontag not the most flattering of portraits , her obsession with interior decorating, and travels with her aging mother The second half is the title piece, about her romantic obsession, as a student, with a female professor These are writings obse [...]

These are essays They re just so much fun The title one is a little over long, but there s a great bit in it about an academic fellowship interview in which both the interviewer and the interviewee get stoned this is in the seventies and wander around an airport My Heroin Christmas is also a good one And the one about taking both her mother and her girlfriend to Santa Fe She s a little mean sometimes You get the feeling that she really believes in that whole writing well is the best revenge thin [...]

I agree with what most of the other readers have posted about this book.One of my favorite paragraphs I also felt weirdly fatuous, almost paralyzed like someone in a jumbo jet when it begins its insane, mind scrambling acceleration down the runway All of a sudden everything starts to race by and its all you can do to squeeze out some last morbid good byes bye bye terminal bye bye little fuel trucks, bye bye control tower hope someone s in there , bye bye scrubby trees and outlying cargo bays bye [...]

Terry Castle s essay collection is delicious Her hilarious and utterly unique sense of humour reminds me, at least in spirit, some quirky writers from the UK, e.g Enright She is really erudite and seems to be interested in everything, from the First World War to interior design She is a linguistic maverick her every page is brimming with inventive prose Her vocabulary is so vast I needed a dictionary all the time while I was reading and emerging after this book as language richer The book is als [...]

Ya know, for a book titled after Charlotte Bronte s The Professor and coming from a Stanford scholar of 18th century literature, I guess you d expect less chatty, tangential prose and discipline I had to just skip over some of the less interesting tangents, like for instance Castle s description of her preoccupations with rubber stamping and digital collage Still and all, Castle s goofy, self deprecating style, while perhaps not worthy of the superlatives Dave Hickey piled on it in his Harper s [...]

I went into this book thinking it would be a memoir reflection on writing and the academy I was very wrong Though Castle s recounting of her own ill fated love affair with a professor whilst in graduate school does encompass the bulk of this volume, neither it nor the other essays contained within it are strictly speaking much about academic life at all Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the further afield Castle travels from academic subjects, the enjoyable her writing is But, regardless [...]

I picked this book up on a whim from the local used book store, and I am incredibly happy with my purchase Terry Castle s writing style is descriptive, delightful, a little off color, and amazingly witty This is one of the smartest books I have ever read The book is a series of semi autobiographical essays You can read the essays in any order as they are not dependent on any other essay in the work I find that there is a surprising honesty in the text I enjoy how Castle considers the intersectio [...]

Zinger autobiographical essays amazingly self revelatory, specific and universal, images that nail her meaning and call no attention to themselves, great writing She gets enthralled with things the bravery of the marching WW I foot soldiers how did they do that the self destructiveness of her half brother and also of Art Pepper, the genius alto sax player what is the difference in their self destructive lives the trip to Santa Fe with her 81 year old mother that maddening love hate mother daught [...]

I found this book to be pretty disappointing It may simply be a case of mis placed expectations I had heard good things from some colleagues who had heard Castle read portions of it, and they seemed to indicate that it was in the humor about academia genre I didn t find this was really the case there were certainly a few humorous moments, although really not that much about academia thus my disappointment I find the humor about academia genre particularly fabulous given that I work with professo [...]

Literary non fiction is the most self indulgent of all styles of literature Really, does anybody care about some writer s lesbian lovelife, vacations, or taste in art Terry Castle redeems the inherent self indulgence of the genre, but only just She actually has interesting taste in music, drops literary references in a way that makes the reader feel cultured, and the lesbian ness of the bad relationships makes them a little enjoyable The wordcrafting is good, and occasionally sparkling, and wh [...]

This was a compulsively good read, and I found myself keeping a running tally of the words Castle uses that I love calumniate, diablerie, lucubrations, and on and on I ve never experienced a writer who makes the awkwardness of being different smarter, poorer, lesbian, music obsessed sound like the most human part of being human Every chapter of this memoir shines on its own merit, but if you are on the fence about whether or not spend time with The Professor , I promise you that the scene where [...]

I didn t care for the first story in this collection but I m so glad I kept reading Most of the writings beside The Professor reminded me of Doris Lessing s The Golden Notebook difficult but brilliant The Professor was one of the most twisted, realistic and uncomfortable things I ve read in a while Castle nails the SM relationship of the vanilla set I can t remember where I heard that but it fits and anyone who has loved someone toxic will relate.

Terry Castle is a wonderful writer The essays in this book are cerebral yet very personal, filled with literary and cultural references, meaningful and interesting, and really funny I really liked how she repeatedly makes fun of herself and points out her character flaws She is very accomplished a Stanford professor, writer, and artist, and super smart, and she presents herself as a regular person with the same neuroses as the rest of us.

A lovely and enjoyable collection of essays This is the first work I have read by Castle and I thought it was quite a good read The Professor is an essay about Castle s first relationship and one that was psychotic is located at the end of the book and is about half of the book While I enjoyed this essay, my favorite was Travels with my Mother in which Castle details a trip she took with her girlfriend and her mother.

Terry Castle can be your friend She wants to be Her life has been interesting Her work clearly develops over the time period in which these pieces were written The best, by far, is the long final chapter, The Professor I recommend reading it If you like that piece a lot, then try digging into the rest.

Parts of this book work really well I loved the mixture of literary criticism with the personal and was expecting the book to be of a book about book loving than it actually was, which is fine I m torn on her rambling proseI sometimes like where it leads her and sometimes think she just uses it as a way to tell terrible jokes It s weird how lowbrow her sense of humor is.

Terry Castle s writing is very witty and she makes unusual observations While I thoroughly enjoyed some portions of this book, I skipped through much of it Those interesting observations can become tedious after several pages More editing might have helped polish the gems contained in this work.
