The Celibacy Club

by

The Celibacy Club Cover

 

Staff Pick

"Janice Eidus has won the O. Henry Prize twice, and The Celibacy Club helps demonstrate why. Her stories are, by turn, erotic, bawdy, and hilarious. Great reading for the plane, bus, Max, or bathtub."
Recommended by Chris Faatz, Powells.com

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This vibrant collection of nineteen short stories by the two-time winner of the prestigious O. Henry Prize is by turns erotic, wildly funny, bawdy, and poignant. Eidus explores our contemporary obsessions: sex-both safe and not-so-safe; Prozac, the '90s drug of choice; Nautilus machine mania; the sinister attraction of vampires; film star James Dean; and rock n' roll icons Axl Rose and Elvis-all with dazzling range.

Janice Eidus' quirky characters seek transcendence in exotic ways, and they sometimes even find it.

Review:

"[O]ne of the freshest and most idiosyncratic voices from the fiction frontier." San Francisco Chronicle
