Beautiful and necessary,
This review is from: Vox (Paperback)
While not quite the mind-altering classic that is Baker's earlier 'The Mezzanine', 'Vox' still has much to recommend it. A wonderfully simple scenario, two slightly unbelievably clever and articulate protagonists, and the truly life-affirming frankness with which sex in all its guises is discussed. Once again Baker has forcibly uncovered areas of life little talked about, described them with his unique combination of photographic precision and aching emotional attachment, and in the process made them somehow glorious.
