So this will be one of those Valentine Days that I loathed when I was young and single. No great sex. No great romance. Not even a thought of great love. So what does a hopeless romantic do?
Read a racy book or two…or three.
Fifty Shades of Grey notwithstanding, I thought I would pass along a book that I’m about to reread as well as 2 more from the same author…Nicholas Baker.
Lately it seems I’m drawn to men with a little paunch, a beard and huge passion. In fact, that could be my next relationship trinity. (Guy Garvey anyone?)
I won’t spoil the ending, but these 3 books are all erotic as well as thought-provoking and sometimes humorous. I would dearly love to discuss any of them on a moonlit night with an intelligent man….beard optional.
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. Reading tour.
