Raunchy and smart, Alyssa Nutting's Tampa leaves no perverse stone unturned. Yet Celeste Price is a highly likable--if not chilling--protagonist who will make you both laugh and gasp. This book is about as irreverent as it gets. A darkly entertaining read that explores the complex relationship between our sexuality and our morality.

An absolutely incredible debut with lots of meat on the bone. As a reader, you will become immersed in Anna's psyche and sharp Swiss world. The book is structurally impressive and functions on an emotional timeline that defies typical narrative. I was moved, I was changed.
