Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"The publishers do not do this book justice when they advertise it as 'the sexiest book' you will ever read, since, as a work of literary artifice, it is far more ambitious than such words would lead one to believe. This novel is a highly wrought evocation through rhythmical prose of the loves of the protagonist's life. It focuses on his troubled marriage, weaving this story into memories of seemingly infinite loves past, notably those in Vietnam. Some readers will find that the author's fixations on phallus, fluids, and flesh (not always sexy) prevent him from delineating a well-rounded character to whom we can relate." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
