Tampa (Paperback)

Alissa Nutting


Attractive, financially comfortable and with a husband who is truly devoted, Celeste Price is an eighth-grade teacher from suburban Tampa who has it all, including a dark secret... an obsession with 14-year-old boys.

Days after starting work at a new school - with her sociopathic forethought - Celeste lures the young Jack Patrick with late night car rides, home visits and unmentionable classroom rendezvous. But with Jack's father's own attraction to her and Jack soon to leave his innocent boyhood behind, the clock is ticking for Celeste.

Starring an anti-hero who cares for nothing but her own pleasure, Alissa Nutting's Tampa is satirical, compelling and surprisingly humourous. An ideal read for fans of American Psycho and Lolita.
