The Dying Animal by Philip Roth

After reading two very long books back to back, I decided to finish off Christmas break with a short one. I had never really read any Philip Roth, and, against my best judgement, I had bought this one with the movie-tie-in cover a while back, wanting to read the book before seeing the movie. It is a very erotic story of 60 plus year old professor who repeatedly falls for young women he teaches. But last woman, Consuela Castillo, is the one who nearly undoes him.
