Full of voices that men dare not raise — even to themselves — this provocative novel is "a brutally seductive" and incisive exploration of male libido, identity, and power (Verve). 

Girls is an erotic spree, a journey into the most forbidden corners of male desire, a story about men who have been rendered numb by their power, who have sacrificed everything for success, who have lost their souls and can find meaning only by living vicariously, obsessively through young women. 

"It's hard to remember another recent novel that's so smart about male desire." —GQ London
