9780099512172: Jake's Thing (Vintage Classics)

Jake Richardson, an Oxford don nearing sixty with a lifetime's lechery behind him, is in pursuit of his lost libido and heads off to the consulting room of a miniature sex therapist. Not one to disobey a doctor's orders, he runs the full humiliating gamut of sex labs and trendy 'workshops', where more than souls are bared. He decks himself with cunning gadgetry, dreams up a weekly fantasy, pets diligently with his overweight wife and browses listlessly through porn magazines behind locked doors. Is sex really worth it? As liberationists abuse him, a campus hostess bores him into bed - and even his own wife starts acting oddly - Jake seriously begins to wonder.

Review:

"Amis amazes at every turn" ( Mail on Sunday)

"A great storyteller, although he was much more than a storyteller" (Keith Waterhouse)

"He was a genuine comic writer, probably the best after P. G. Wodehouse-He had a lasting influence and was a very good novelist" (John Mortimer)

"In these explicit days, Mr Amis is the laureate of the unsayable, the literary it man" ( Sunday Telegraph)
