Casey reviews My Education by Susan Choi [with spoilers]

Casey reviews My Education by

myeducation

I’ve been on a bit of a bisexual book binge lately, so after the Lambda Literary awards were announced and Susan Choi’s third novel My Education was declared the winner in the category of bisexual fiction, I thought I should pick it up.  I have a healthy amount of skepticism about the decision making at the lammies but I decided this book was probably a good place to start.  I’m glad, actually,…

In this book, the reader is thrown right into the action.  Our narrator is a girl named Anais who may or may not be crazy, but does enough drugs that it’s a moot point most of the time.  She’s difficult for me to understand since she uses a lot of slang and is Scottish in the first place. She is a foster child who’s been to dozens of homes before being placed in the Panopticon, an orphanage of sorts with eyes constantly watching from the central tower – or are they?  Is this real, or part of Anais’s insanity, or a story she’s telling herself to make sense of her world, or an attempt to scam the reader?  There’s no way to tell, meaning this is one of those books you want to start over from the beginning as soon as you finish it.  Oh yes – Anais sleeps with both girls and boys, though she seems to prefer the ladies.

When you tie my wrists in those soft leather ties,
They made me feel so loved,
the way a hood quiets a falcon,
or an old black leather jacket
comforts a lonely little bi-dyke.
— "Black Leather" by Jan Steckell from her book The Horizontal Poet.

How to find bisexual books

As for lists of actual bisexual books may I suggest people start with relatively easy stuff such as the Finalists in the “Bisexual” category(s) in the Lambda Literary Awards (since 2006 only, they didn’t let us in before that):
