Synopses & Reviews
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.
"Explicit, often funny, and above all erotic...Baker specializes in the risky and playful." Los Angeles Times
"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
"A remarkable tour de force...Vox is hilarious...a delightful novel." Washington Post
