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.

*shrug*

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.
