Reviews

'This book is platypus-like, unclassifiable.'--Marina Warner, London Review of Books --Marina Warner"London Review of Books" (07/31/2014)
"[An] intriguing book . . . Smith teases out the history of these sex objects to provide a thorough genealogy of today's erotic mannequins."--Shelly Ronen, Public Books--Shelly Ronen "Public Books "
"Consistently fascinating"--Jeremy Biles, Rain Taxi--Jeremy Biles "Rain Taxi "
'Ladies and gents, welcome to the museum of the erotic doll. Step right up and feast your eyes on modern man's curious contraptions. If the saucy blow-up doll makes you squeamish, brace yourself for the Dutch Wife (a sailor's delight!), lubricating robot ladies, surrealist brides stripped bare, state-of-the-art RealDolls, and the iDollators who love them. Marquard Smith is the curator of this collection of men's dolls, rendered in a lavishly illustrated volume.'--Laura Frost, Times Higher Education-- (03/13/2014)
