The peaceful and stable life of a couple of charismatic lecturers, who have been teaching for years at the same small college in upstate New York, is suddenly shaken with the distribution of a petition demanding the removal of the husband from his position due to inappropriate relationships he has with female students. The situation becomes even more explosive when a demand also arises for the wife, a popular literature lecturer, to resign, after she refuses to condemn her husband, and even adds fuel to the fire and develops feelings for Vladimir, a young, respected and married writer who comes to teach on campus. In a polished, witty and contemporary novel, Julia May Jonas takes readers into charged territory where moral boundaries collide with the urges of the human heart, and places an accurate mirror in front of the personal and political minefield of the current moment. Julia Mae Jonas has written plays and worked in the theater for many years. She teaches at Skidmore College and lives in Brooklyn with her family. Vladimir is her first novel. "Funny, smart and gripping from the first page." – Maria Semple, author of the bestseller "Where Are You, Bernadette" "A rare combination of compelling characters, mesmerizing prose and fast-paced action." – The Boston Globe "Virtuoso... the heroine is so witty, sharp and seductive. I was captivated by her charm." – NPR "Jonas' heroine is a work of art in itself." – The Washington Post
