Ever wondered what it’s like to get an erotic novel published? It was a surprise to Robin Slick, too. Bounce along as she tells the tale in “My Brilliant Career.” First hint: she didn’t know she was writing an erotic novel.

“Mexican Teenager” is the ultimate tease. “I haven’t been trying to resist him at all; I’ve only told myself so. If I had, I wouldn’t have agreed to come out with him on a Sunday night, when the disco closes earlier than other nights so it seems more innocent. I have brought along my teacher friend Gussie to pretend to myself I am not going out with a student but the ruse has fallen away.” I’m dying to learn what happens after the 33-year-old narrator kisses her 19-year-old student. I hope we learn the rest of the story from Susan Ortega…
