Reviews

"Truly uproarious . . . Baker is one of the most consistently enticing writers of our time." --Sam Lipsyte, front cover of The New York Times Book Review
"Wild and hallucinatory . . . Full of fearlessness, cheerfulness, wit, and brio." --Meg Wolitzer, The Washington Post
"
House of Holes
is as funny as it is filthy. . . . When he is not writing about sex (and also when he is), Baker is one of the most beautiful, original, ingenious prose stylists to have come along in decades." --Charles McGrath, The New York Times Magazine
"A sexy, disturbing, funny book: It may also challenge the usual reader of literary novels with its sheer dazzling excess of imagination." --Kate Roiphe, Slate
"Awe-inducing . . . A joyful, almost Chaucerian book . . . Had Dr. Seuss been a slightly insane pornographer, he might have written a book like this." --Tom Bissell, GQ
"A funny, frisky novel that brings sexy back in a way that Justin Timberlake never dreamed . . . Reminds us that books can be fun and sexy, that literature can have just as much raw energy and liberating chaos as a good f*ck." --Mark Haskell Smith, Los Angeles Review of Books
"Brilliant, absurd, puerile, depraved, and completely enthralling." --Steve Almond, The Boston Globe
"A world of universal arousal is common enough in pornography, but Baker has fully realized its comic possibilities . . . [He] can conjure fantastical sexual scenarios and unspool yards of charmingly filthy dialogue." --Elaine Blair, The New York Review of Books
"Amazing and indispensable." --Jeff Simon, The Buffalo News
