About this title


A funny yet moving debut coming-of-age novel traces Nicholas Wertheim's thirty-year sexual obsession with an upper-class neighbor, ten years his senior, and his struggle to release himself from his youthful yearnings. A first novel. Tour.


Snakebite Sonnet begins with the unbridled attraction 10-year-old Nicky Wertheim feels toward 19-year-old Julia Turrell. So begins a long on-again-off-again relationship based mostly on lust. Throughout the novel, from Nicky's childhood in New Jersey to college life at Cornell and then on to the life of an East Village punk, Julia appears and reappears to Nicky, leading to a series of encounters that bring bliss and misery in equal measures to both participants. Max Phillips' razor-sharp satirical instincts give this first novel an edge that many coming-of-age efforts lack.
