Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Baker has written a novel that remaps the territory of sex — solitary and telephonic, lyrical and profane, comfortable and dangerous. Written in the form of a phone conversation between two strangers, Vox is an erotic classic that places the author in the first rank of America's major writers.

Review:

"Explicit, often funny, and above all erotic...Baker specializes in the risky and playful." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"Imagine Chagall being commissioned to do the drawings for the joy of sex, and you'll have some notion of the topsy-turvey, concupiscent free-for-all that Vox conjures up....The book exudes a giddy buoyancy that you don't often find in American fiction." San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"A remarkable tour de force...Vox is hilarious...a delightful novel." Washington Post

About the Author

Nicholson Baker has published five novels: The Mezzanine, Room Temperature, Vox, The Fermata, and The Everlasting Story of Nory, and two works of nonfiction, U and I and The Size of Thoughts. He lives with his wife and two children in Maine.
