The author of The Anthologist as well as nonfiction books like the National Book Critics Circle Award winner Double Fold, Nicholson Baker explores the wildest corners of our sexual imaginations in this gleefully over-the-top novel, set in a pleasure resort where normal rules don't apply. In charge of day-to-day operations is Lila, a former hospital administrator whose breast milk has unusual regenerative properties. Brimful of good-natured wit with a surreal sexual vocabulary, this is a modern-day bacchanal intended to surprise, amuse, and arouse.
"Truly uproarious.... Baker is one of the most consistently enticing writers of our time.... Readers with a fondness for richly ridiculous diction, witty provocation and graphic sexual prose that celebrates desire, frailty and the comedy of life will not be disappointed."—NYTBR (front page review)
