Product Details


“Exhilarating…vigorous and luminous…Few books evoke the state of love at its apogee.” –The New York Times Book Review

“The best rendering of erotic politics…since D.H. Lawrence…a marvelous novel, one in which a resolutely independent voice claims new imaginative territory…The voice of Rush’s narrator is immediate, instructive and endearing.” –The New York Review of Books
“Witty, raunchy…prodigiously aspiring…a remarkable book…His protagonist is a memorable female character: a continually shifting prism that revolves from dashing to needy, from witty to morose…wonderfully varied and pungent.” –Los Angeles Times Book Review

“A dryly comic love story about grown-up people who take the life of the mind seriously and know they sometimes sound silly…Mating is state-of-the-art artifice.” –Newsweek

“It draws the reader steadily in. Not toward the heart of darkness but toward brilliant illumination.” -The New York Times
“Bold and ambitious…delightful, provocative.” –San Francisco Chronicle
“Brilliantly written…utterly sui generis!…Rush has alerted us to the transfiguring power of passion…He deploys the narrative voice with…brio…wit and persuasiveness.” –Mirabella
 “An audaciously clever novel with substance as well as flash.” –Detroit Free Press
