Review of The Dying Animal by Philip Roth
The Dying Animal - Philip Roth

This is my fourth Roth novel and I am not sure how I feel about it.  The narrator/main character is an old professor who basically discusses how his sexual desires have been the central part of his life.  He spend most of the story talking about an affair he had with a 24 year old Cuban student and how he became obsessed with her (which was different than the many other liaisons he had throughout his life).  The writing is well done, but I couldn't help but think that Roth was projecting his own desires through his character.  While I don't think a man's sexual desire should end by the time he is in his 70s, I am not sure the obsession with it is entirely healthy - or at least something I want to think about at this point in my life.
