Inhaltsangabe: "A cool, comic survey of the sexual education of a young Hungarian, from his first encounter, as a twelve-year-old refugee with the American forces, to his unsatisfactory liaison with a reporter's wife in Canada at the belated end of his youth, when he was twenty-three . . . elegantly erotic, with masses of that indefinable quality, style . . . this has the real stuff of immortality."--B. A. Young, "Punch" "A pleasure. Vizinczey writes of women beautifully, with sympathy, tact and delight, and he writes about sex with more lucidity and grace than most writers ever acquire."--Larry McMurtry, "Houston Post" "Like James Joyce, who was as far from being a writer of erotica as Dostoevsky, Vizinczey has a refreshing message to deliver: Life is not about sex, sex is about life."--John Podhoretz, "Washington Times" "The gracefully written story of a young man growing up among older women . . . although some passages may well arouse the reader, this novel brims with what the courts have termed "redeeming literary merit."--Clarence Petersen, "Chicago Tribune" ""A funny novel about sex, or rather (which is rarer) a novel which is funny as well as touching about sex . . . elegant, exact and melodious--has style, presence and individuality."--Isabel Quigly, Sunday Telegraph" ""The delicious adventures of a young Casanova who appreciates maturity while acquiring it himself. In turn naive, sophisticated, arrogant, disarming, the narrator woos his women and his tale wins the reader."--Polly Devlin, Vogue"
Rezension: "A funny novel about sex, or rather (which is rarer) a novel which is funny as well as touching about sex... elegant, exact and melodious - has style, presence and individuality." -- Isabel Quigly, Sunday Telegraph
