Baker has written a novel that remaps the territory of sex--solitary and telephonic, lyrical and profane, comfortable and dangerous. Written in the form of a phone conversation between two strangers, Vox is an erotic classic that places the author in the first rank of America's major writers. Reading tour.

One long phone sex conversation. Maybe this novel would have appealed to me in the 90's, when I was in college, but I found it dated and self-indulgent. Read full review

User Review  - SRumzi - LibraryThing

A man and a woman connect on a phone line service. They get erotic and explicit in their conversation. They refuse to hang up in case they lose the connection. Funny and sexy. Read full review
