about

"The funniest American novel since Sam Lipsyte's 'The Ask'."- 'Village Voice' "A ribald chronicle of [a] 60-something Manhattan accountant, who's come to Rio de Janeiro as a sex tourist. [A] fever dream of a novel."- 'New York Times Book Review' "Levy delivers a visceral blend of hilarious satire and study in human sexuality, taking us on a deviant tour of Rio."- 'Interview Magazine' 'I have come to regard almost everything that happens in human life as a form of therapy.' So muses Kenny Cantor, always dapper in his seersucker suit from the Brooks Brothers 346 collection. Kenny is a CPA, amateur psychoanalyst, and sex-tourist vacationing in Rio when he gets waylaid at a psychoanalytic conference.What ensues is a provocative journey that merges sex and psychoanalysis through Rio's tawdry netherworld of Susan Sontag-quoting denizens as only an incendiary voice like Francis Levy could imagine. Francis Levy is the author of 'Erotomania: A Romance', a Queerty.com Top 10 Book of 2008 and an 'Inland Empire Weekly' Standout Book of 2008. His short stories, criticism, humor, and poetry have appeared in 'The New York Times', 'The Washington Post', 'The New Republic', 'The Village Voice', and many others.
