Sex and the Single Librarian
By ELISABETH COHEN posted at 12:00 pm on November 20, 2014

"One of the frustrations of being a librarian is the occupational stereotyping. Librarians tend to be depicted in books and movies as elderly spinsters, rigid and frigid. More recently, in a predictable attempt to subvert convention, the slutty librarian trope has emerged: young, hot-blooded, yet not exempt from the cats-eye glasses."

ELISABETH COHEN's fiction has appeared in the Cincinnati Review, Mississippi Review, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, and Conjunctions. She is a graduate of the Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins and the University of Maryland's School of Library and Information Science.
