In this novel, "Celeste Price, a smoldering 26-year-old middle-school teacher in Florida, unrepentantly recounts her elaborate and sociopathically determined seduction of a 14-year-old student. Celeste has chosen and lured the charmingly modest Jack Patrick into her web. Jack is enthralled and in awe of his eighth-grade teacher, and, most importantly, willing to accept Celeste's terms for a secret relationship--car rides after dark, rendezvous at Jack's house while his single father works the late shift, and body-slamming erotic encounters in Celeste's empty classroom. In slaking her sexual thirst, Celeste Price is remorseless and deviously free of hesitation, a monstress of pure motivation. She deceives everyone, is close to no one, and cares little for anything but her pleasure. Tampa is a sexually explicit, virtuosically satirical, American Psycho-esque rendering of a monstrously misplaced but undeterrable desire. Laced with black humor and crackling sexualized prose, Alissa Nutting's Tampa is a grand, seriocomic examination of the want behind student / teacher affairs and a scorching literary debut."--Publisher's statement.… (lisätietoja)

Tampa (tekijä: Alissa Nutting) (2013)

  1. 10
    Lolita (tekijä: Vladimir Nabokov) (TheAmpersand)
    TheAmpersand: What absolutely, positively every novel about the relationship between a too-old person and a too-young person desires to be. Exquisitely written, sharply observed, and deeply felt, it's one of the best novels ever written. Nabokov's a writer of such talent that he takes a story that could have been merely pornographic and makes it about the deepest, saddest sort of love. One of its translators, in Vanity Fair called it "the only convincing love story of our century." It's probably true.… (lisätietoja)

I think GR user Karen does a really great job in her (NSFW) review talking about the various aspects of this book that will certainly have a lot of people talking. Which, um, yeah, when it's about a middle school teacher who is also a sexual predator and targets 14-year-old boys? And it's rather graphic in nature? The conversation is gonna be loud and heated. But then again, as Karen put it, not every book is written by Nicholas Sparks. Actually, just read Karen's review because it is excellent and my brain is fried from Alissa Nutting's powerful, unapologetic writing. ( )

Tampa is possibly the most repulsive, disturbing, unenjoyable book I have EVER read. It's also literarily and socially important, but because of its subject matter I wouldn't recommend reading for pleasure.

Tampa is a pathological tale told by Celeste, a "pretty blonde" middle school English teacher who seduces her favorite students into sexually abusive and coercive relationships. She's a total sociopath and pedophile, and the amount of graphic detail about pubescent boy bodies included in her perspective makes this a difficult and at times rather disgusting read. Her exploits have predictably disastrous results but as is often also the case in real life, the fallout is far worse for the abuser's victims and associates than for the abuser herself.

I don't want to get into too many details in this review because frankly, it's disturbing to revisit them. Gender-flipped Lolita comparisons have been made but Nabokov intentionally shied away from anything too obviously lurid from what I understand. This book revels in luridity, giving us vivid descriptions of smells and tastes and textures that really don't invite contemplation if you are not a pedophile yourself. Nutting's flat, dry matter of fact prose make the graphic nature of the sexual scenes in this even more shocking and the sheer reptilian self-centeredness of the protagonist is tinged with just enough reality to be believable and perhaps a little bit indicting.

We've all seen the headlines and bleary photos of red-faced young women accused of abusing their teen and pre-teen boy students. We've all also heard the asinine jokes made about how lucky these boys have been to be "initiated" into sexual relationships by these women--usually young, white and conventionally attractive. In the wake of #MeToo and the allegations leveled against prominent #MeToo supporter Asia Argento by a young man who was underage at the time of their relationship and the surrounding discussion, Tampa is definitely food for thought.

4 stars, not because it was a good read, but because it was a shocking and thought-provoking one with a necessary place in our social landscape of literature. ( )

I guess "like" isn't the correct term for how I felt about this book, but it's certainly well-written, compelling, topical, and ultimately chilling. ( )

If you're not easily shocked by frank descriptions of deviant sex, there is not too much to sink your teeth into in this book. The writing itself is fine, but most of the characters lack dimension and depth, many of them reduced to superficial motivation. The subject matter was rich for exploration and possible digressions into other aspects of the main character, but it seemed that the author was intent on portraying her as singularly driven by sexual desire to the exclusion of all other thoughts. Regardless of whether that characterization is realistic or not, the end result is a single-note narrative and a largely tedious reading experience—unless one is entertained by graphic content alone, in which case there are plenty of explicit descriptions of taboo sex. But if that's what you're after, Anaïs Nin and Georges Bataille are more substantial choices. ( )
