About the Author

Janice Eidus, winner of two O. Henry Prizes, is the author of a novel Faithful Rebecca, and the short story collections Vito Loves Geraldine and The Celibacy Club. She lives in New York City.

Reviews

"Balancing humor and depth, the 19 short stories in this collection reflect the quirky voice, at once cynical and sincere, that has made Eidus a two-time winner of the O. Henry Award. In their funniest moments, Eidus's stories have serious subtexts of isolation, addiction, abuse and despair."--Publishers Weekly

"Janice Eidus is more entertaining than the Marquis de Sade in a dress. Her juxtaposition of emotion--from the brazenly wicked to the ardently tender--will leave the reader breathless. The Celibacy Club is definitely a club you will want to join."--Lucinda Ebersole and Richard Peabody, co-editors of Mondo Barbie

"Eidus' powerful stories about men and women waging silent was against the culture have the eerie effect of waking us up even though we didn't know we were sleeping."--Hal Sirowitz, author of Mother Said
