All she knew was that she was a tramp, a slut, a roundheeled girl no good for anything but sex. She would flunk out of school and wind up screwing her happy way through life until she finally died and they put her in a box and shoveled her into a hole. This, while it made her drink during the bad moments, made her almost happy the rest of the time.

The Return of a Cult Classic

Linda Shepard is looking for a man.

A capable man. Her first man.

The campus of Clifton College is the perfect hunting grounds. It's swelling with men and brimming with liquor, and it doesn't take Linda long to find her prize.

Don Gibbs is the editor of The Clifton Record. He's brusque, he's unkempt, and he somehow maintains his broad physique with a diet of just booze, coffee and cigarettes. Soon enough his piercing intellect and hedonistic ways bring Linda to her knees and lower, lower still.

Is she in over her head? As Linda soon discovers, sex can be a dangerous game...

...almost as dangerous as love.

About the Author

Lawrence Block is the bestselling author of over fifty novels, including the much-heralded Matthew Scudder crime series. As a young man in New York, Block wrote soft-core pornographic paperbacks for publishers such as Nightstand Books to publish under their own house pseudonyms. In this case, Campus Tramp was released as the work of Andrew Shaw; examined retrospectively, however, it has Block written all over it.
