New review: Susan Choi’s My Education

// 10 August 2013

Cover of My Education by Susan Choi.jpgReviewer Katherine Wootton is thoroughly impressed by coming-of-age novel My Education by Susan Choi, in which narrator Regina Gottlieb recalls an intense love affair from her graduate student days:

Regina conducts a kind of forensic analysis of her younger self and her choices with a merciless honesty, as if determined to own every flawed aspect of herself and her past in order to understand them and decide what, finally, to do. While this self-portrait contains plenty of wry, observational humour, it is at times so raw and naked that the reader would flinch, were it not for the retrospective viewpoint: she has clearly, if barely, survived.
