“Joanna Walsh is fast becoming one of our most important writers.” —Deborah Levy
“It’s excellent, light, funny, all in all: tiny book—a great read!” —Dubravka Ugresic
Once upon a time, three big dicks lived in a house in the forest… Meanwhile, in a city where no one has genitals, residents get creative with their desires… A woman discovers that she can cause people to have orgasms by pressing a special key on her keyboard… Joanna Walsh’s interlinked fairytales take place in a realm of erotic possibility, where desire is the driving energy and shame seems to be an unheard-of substance. In these funny, absurd, sometimes dark tales, everything is imbued with the magic of sex.
