Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the New York Times bestseller House of Holes, Nicholson Baker, “one of the most beautiful, original, and ingenious prose stylists to have come along in decades” (The New York Times Magazine), returns to the terrain that made him famous with a gleefully provocative, off-the-charts erotic novel that is unlike anything you’ve read—“a filthy tour de force” (Time).

Shandee finds a friendly arm at a granite quarry. Ned drops down a hole in a golf course. So begins Nicholson Baker’s fuse-blowing sexual escapade—a modern-day Hieronymous Boschian bacchanal set in a pleasure resort where normal rules don’t apply. House of Holes, one of the funniest and most talked-about books in recent memory, is a gleefully provocative novel sure to surprise, amuse, and arouse.

I'm not really sure who this book for -- it's way too whimsical and quirky and literary to be very effective as a stroke book, and it's way too dirty for just about anyone else. It is really, really dirty ... but it is also by turns funny, enchanting, romantic, playful, silly, and engaging. It's almost as if Baker is playing a game with the reader to see how many wrenching turns he can toss without losing our interest. He's a good enough writer to keep the game interesting. Whether that makes for a good book?... I'm still not sure. But it's a fun ride.
