Vox is a novel that remaps the territory of sex – sex solitary and telephonic, lyrical and profane, comfortable and dangerous. It is an erotic classic that places Nicholson Baker firmly in the first rank of major American writers.
“Imagine Chagall being commissioned to do the drawing for The Joy of Sex, and you’ll have some notion of the topsy-turvy, concupiscent free-for-all that Vox conjures up... The book achieves a giddy buoyancy that you don’t often find in American fiction.” – Michael Upchurch, San Francisco Chronicle
“Explicit, often funny, and above all erotic...Baker specializes in the risky and playful.” – Cyra McFadden, Los Angeles Times
“This is Ravel’s ‘Bolero’ played out on the page...The conversation gets sexier and sexier and...well, I’m too wrung out to go on.” – Louise Bernikow, Cosmopolitan
