Rezension:

"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 sexy, disturbing, funny book . . . It may also challenge the usual reader of literary novels with its sheer dazzling excess of imagination." --Katie Roiphe, "Slate"

"[Baker] escorts us through a surprisingly delightful session of all things benevolently sexual--everything's consensual, of age and legal, even if, in most cases, physically impossible. . . . We'd recommend it to nearly everyone we know, and no one we don't." --Tim Grobaty, "Contra-Costa Times"

"About as fun and thoroughly unpretentious as literature gets." --Michael Pucci, "New York Journal of Books"

"This is a funny, frisky novel that brings sexy back in a way that Justin Timberlake never dreamed." --Mark Haskell Smith, "Los Angeles Review of Books"

"A permanent tribute to both the idiocy and surreal inventiveness of sexual desire. . . . Attention must be paid. And laughter must ensue--and rather a lot of it, too." --Jeff Simon, "Buffalo News"

"Wild and hallucinatory . . . Every page offers something smart and amusing . . . Full of fearlessness, cheerfulness, wit, and brio." --Meg Wolitzer, "The Washington Post"

"A filthy tour de force" --"Time"

""House of Holes" is as funny as it is filthy and breathes new life into the tired, fossilized conventions of pornography in a way that suggests a deep, almost scholarly familiarity with the ancient tropes." ""--Charles McGrath, "The New York Times Magazine"

"A sexy, disturbing, funny book . . . with its sheer dazzling excess of imagination." --Kate Roiphe, "Slate"

"Amazing and indispensable." --Jeff Simon, "The Buffalo News"

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"

Vom Verlag:

In the New York Times bestseller House of Holes, Nicholson Baker, "one of the most beautiful, original, and ingenious prose stylists to have come along in decades" (The New York Times Magazine), returns to the terrain that made him famous with a gleefully provocative, off-the-charts erotic novel that is unlike anything you've read--"a filthy tour de force" (Time).
Shandee finds a friendly arm at a granite quarry. Ned drops down a hole in a golf course. So begins Nicholson Baker's fuse-blowing sexual escapade--a modern-day Hieronymus Boschian bacchanal set in a pleasure resort where normal rules don't apply. House of Holes, one of the most talked-about books in recent memory, is a gleefully provocative novel sure to surprise, amuse, and arouse.
