Review quote

"A passionate novel... the body wanting sex, sex, sex and love and safety, comfort; the mind wanting freedom, independence, the power to work.... wonderfully funny and sad, witty and agonizing, brilliant, sensual, serious" -Hannah Green"Belongs to and hilariously extends the tradition of "Catcher in the Rye" and Portnoy's "Complaint".... [F]earless and fresh, tender and exact... " -John Updike"The boundary-breaking novel that redefined sexuality." "-O magazine""The book that started it all by the woman who started it all." -Naomi Wolf"Extraordinary...at once wildly funny and very wise." --"Los Angeles Times"
