Nicholson Baker is a great storyteller. This one is entirely dialogue--the conversation between a man and a woman on an adult party line!

Highly unusual telephone conversation between two sexually charged people, this novel is like nothing you've ever read before. Captivating, insightful.

This book has a minor place in history, as it was referenced in the explicit phone calls between Pres. Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. Putting that aside, it's an erotic classic that is so well-written it qualifies as literature. The vivid characterizations and witty dialogue stand up to numerous "re-reads." Recommended!

Somewhere between Erotica and Fiction.

Hot in a way that is completely unpredictable. If I had a phone conversation like that, I'm pretty sure I'd want to spend the rest of my life with that person. Great book.

I purchased this book because it had been recommended to me but I found it very hard to get in to. Was not able to finish this book.
