The next in the Career-Girl series, and so far the only one to take place largely away from the Magdalena Arms. I get the impression that the early 1960s (pre-sexual revolution) setting is a spoof, in the way that Mad Men is too, on the resurgence of conservative cultural values. However, Bobby struggles with teaching because she thinks she's an idiot jock, so there's plenty to explore! Furthermore, Nolan includes other bi-sexual women in the book who want Bobby in bed but not public, giving the reader serious food for thought. I would've enjoyed the book as much (or even more) without it intruding every few pages on the campy good fun.

Lois Lenz took 80% of the novel to figure it out (despite making out with women through the whole thing). The characters are all rather naive and particularly Bobby Blanchard is such a proper, do-things-by-the-book person that she herself would have balked at that. She has a sense of humour, and, while the students' adoration is a bit over the top (in a way fitting to the type of book, mind), it's obvious that she would be the sort of teacher students loved.

In her Lesbian Career Girl series, Monica Nolan attempts the same sort of seemingly effortless feat. When the mystery was solved at the end of Lois Lenz, Lesbian Secretary, I thought it was a bit silly. Roberta "Bobby" Blanchard is crushed when an accident forces her to leave the glamorous world of professional field hockey. The one big thing I didn't care for about the bed-hopping and lady-lusting is that it included students.

I found Bobby's confidence in her sexuality a bit of a relief compared to Lois Lenz's completely obliviousness to hers, despite making out with women every other chapter. I was not a good softball player, and my lack of skill meant that I was placed permanently in the outfield where the ball rarely came my way. She decides to go the gym to get back in shape but her first time is a disaster: she has no idea what she's doing.By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. Sometimes, the stereotype helps with expectations, and Nolan uses the sexy librarian stereotype beautifully. I’m sure it’s because I’m a woman, but not having men around really does make a big difference in terms of feeling safe in an environment.
