Description

"There are only three types of sexual abnormality: abstinence, celibacy, and delayed marriage." - Alfred Kinsey It is 1939. In the campus of Indiana University a revolution has begun. The stir is caused by Alfred Kinsey, a zoologist who is determined to take sex out of the bedroom. John Milk, a freshman, is enthralled by the professor's daring lectures. Over the next two decades, he becomes Kinsey's right hand man and helps him research The Sexual Behaviour in the Human Male and The Sexual Behaviour in the Human Female, the first ever bestsellers about sex. But Kinsey's zeal has dangerous limits and Milk finds himself drawn into his mentor's sexual inner circle - a circle from which he is never, ever, able to break out. Combining epic storytelling with his penchant for the bizarre, T.C. Boyle is back and better than ever.show more
