Shandee finds a friendly arm at a granite quarry. Ned drops
down a hole in a golf course. Luna meets a man made of light
bulbs at a tanning parlor. So begins Nicholson Bakerâ€™s
fuse-blowing, sex-positive escapade, House of Holes. Baker,
the bestselling author of The Mezzanine, Vox, and The
Fermata, who â€śwrites like no one else in Americaâ€ť
(Newsweek), returns to erotic territory with a gleefully
over-the-top novel set in a pleasure resort, where normal
rules donâ€™t apply. Visitors, pulled in via their drinking
straws or the dryers in laundromats, can undergo crotchal
transfers . . . make love to trees . . . visit the
Groanrooms and the twelve-screen Porndecahedron . . . or
pussy-surf the White Lake. Itâ€™s very expensive, of course,
but there are work-study programs. In charge of day-to-day
operations is Lila, a former hospital administrator whose
breast milk has unusual regenerative properties.
Brimful of good-nature, wit, and surreal sexual vocabulary,
House of Holes is a modern-day Hieronymous Boschian
bacchanal that is sure to surprise, amuse, and arouse.
