The Book of Orgasms
Nin Andrews’ poems and stories have appeared in many literary journals and anthologies, including Ploughshares, Best American Poetry (1997, 2001, 2003), and Great American Prose Poems. She is the author of several books, including Why God Is a Woman (BOA, 2015); Southern Comfort (CavanKerry Press, 2009), Dear Professor, Do You Live in a Vacuum? (Subito Press, 2008), Sleeping with Houdini (BOA Editions Ltd., 2008), Midlife Crisis with Dick and Jane (Web Del Sol, 2005), and The Book of Orgasms (Cleveland State University Poetry Center, 2000).“There is no other young writer—at least on these shores—whose work even remotely resembles that of Nin Andrews. To find her predecessor one has to look to Europe, to the sly and sometimes erotic zaniness of Luis Bunuel. Nin Andrews’ The Book of Orgasms is hilariously Swiftian and eerily surrealist by turns. Talents as original as hers are rare—and are exceedingly welcome.” –David Wojohn
“What a swell first book this is—sexy, audacious, funny, inventive. Nin Andrews has a deft comic touch that enhances her lyricism. Her commitment to pleasure is a salutary reminder that amusement contains muse. Read this book in bed. I’ m sure it will be as good for you as it was for me.” –David Lehman
