Read an Excerpt from Sex and the River Styx

We’re delighted to share with you the Foreword to a new collection of essays written by Edward Hoagland entitled Sex and the River Styx.

Admired by a pantheon of America’s greatest writers and considered one of our most prolific essayists, Hoagland is in a class of his own. He came of age during our country’s literary heyday, learned to write the old-fashioned way — through direct experience in love, travel, and immersion in the natural world — and then dedicated decades of his life to prose that is not only powerful, but truly original. Now, more than fifty years after he first began publishing, Hoagland brings his acuity to bear in this latest collection of essays.

Read the Foreword to Sex and the River Styx, written by acclaimed Vermont author Howard Frank Mosher, below.

Edward Hoagland’s Sex and the River Styx will be released in February, and is available for pre-order now.
