“O’Brien handles [his] story with a masterly and subtle art, as her turns the unlikely into the possible without gush or affectation: Like Carroll himself, the change is slow, timid, but intelligent and increasingly hopeful. . . . [T]his is a fine book.”Carolyn Jack, The Cleveland Plain Dealer

John O’Brien’s books have established him as a writer who communicated the voice of the loner with blistering realness and unmistakable force. Stripper Lessons is perhaps O’Brien’s most interior and intense novel, a powerful story of one man’s obsessive search to belong.
