Vox by Nicholson Baker (2.5/5)

First published: 1998
Page count: 176
The back says: A man and a woman, strangers to each other, residents of distant cities, have both called an adult party line. Finding each other's voice attractive, they soon switch to a private, "one-to-one" connection. Their seduction-through-conversation begins hesitantly and then becomes erotic.

I say: This was a quick and pretty ok reed; nothing too risqué or even really interesting. The only reason I read it was because it had a blurb on the front that this was the novel Monica Lewinsky famously gave Bill Clinton.


Two strangers talk about themselves and their sex life and it was all rather meh, to be honest. I barely remember anything other than the man ordering some pantyhose for some woman at some point, and the woman sharing some fantasy about the men packing up the pantyhose.

2.5/5 because whatever it was, it wasn’t for me.
