Sex and the River Styx

by Edward Hoagland

Foreword by Howard Frank Mosher


"A masterwork on aging in men [from] America's most intelligent and wide-ranging essayist-naturalist."

Philip Roth

"Hoagland is our wild world's literary virtuoso."

Annie Proulx

"A superb collection—and more than that, a powerful narrative of the life of the man himself."

Paul Theroux

"'The seething underpinnings of life's flash and filigree..." Those words from Edward Hoagland's new book of essays, Sex and the River Styx, are an apt description of all of his work. His eloquence frees readers from nostalgia for the "old days" as he writes of life's variety—from elephants' toes to the red of a rooster's comb."

Paula Fox, author of News From the World
