Description


"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.
