3.6/5 Goodreads

David Kepesh, white-haired and now in his sixties, is an eminent cultural critic on NPR radio and a formidable lecturer at a New York college. For years he's been casually, almost habitually, sleeping with the more spirited of his female students, though with an aesthete's critical distance. But now he's met Consuela Castillo, a twenty-four-year-old Cuban student of such head-turning beauty, that Kepesh finds himself dragged helplessly into a quagmire of sexual jealousy and loss.
The Dying Animal is a virtuoso performance from Philip Roth, following Kepesh through the tumult of erotic lust and the search for freedom, shackled by a mortal human body.
