Listen: Edward Hoagland discusses Sex and the River Styx

Acclaimed essayist Edward Hoagland has just released a new collection of writings entitled Sex and the River Styx.

Already receiving rave reviews from the editors of Amazon.com (who named it a “Best Book of the Month” for February), Publishers Weekly, and Booklist, the book includes essays from every stage of Hoagland’s life. 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.

Published over the course of thirteen years in magazines such as Harper’s, Orion, and Outside, the essays in Sex and the River Styx explore themes of aging, love, and sex in deeply personal, often surprising ways through stories of African matriarchs, circus aerialists, and the wonder of wild places, along with the despair of losing them. Hoagland’s prose shines with the energy and intelligence that has characterized his work for decades and the wisdom of a man whose curiosity about the world has given him, and us, a lifetime of stories. Sex and the River Styx is an elegy for the marvels Hoagland has witnessed and wondered at over the course of his life—and the wildness of nature, of love, and of loss.

Check out Sex and the River Styx (available in both hardcover and paperback formats) in our bookstore now.
