Summary
After he is denied tenure, a bored English literature teacher at a Baptist college writes a soft-porn book that recharges his life but causes an uproar on the college campus.
Critique
Ezra's perspective on life is insightful but humorous. The secondary characters are well-developed, interesting, and play a vital part in the story. Several funny situations and dialogues. Helps the reader to reflect on his/her definition of freedom of expression and what is and is not obscene. Recommend.
