Vox, by Nicholson Baker
Vox (book; 1993)
By Nicholson Baker

One of two books from Nicholson Baker in the early 1990s to make him a household name (the other being The Fermata), here the author takes a look at kinky sex among the dysfunctional intellectuals, which can actually go much stranger places than you would expect. Not containing a lot of actual sex, but a very erotic book nonetheless, Vox like most of Baker's other work is a polarizing piece of fiction, one you're guaranteed to either love or hate.

Out of 10: 9.4
