Summary A ́ђجbold and unflinchingly sexýђح ( Vogue ) debut novel about a young woman who follows her desires into a world of pleasure, decadence, and privilege, unraveling everything she thought she knew about sex . . . and herself. ℗¡ ́ђجOne of the most entertaining books about sex Íђةve ever read . . . The perfect read for fans of Raven Leilani and Ottessa Moshfegh, this is a book that will have people talking.́ђح́ђؤ BuzzFeed ́ђجA sex masterpiece.́ђح́ђؤ The Guardian ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: The New Yorker ́ђجAnytime I want, I can forsake this dinner party and jump into real life.́ђح́ђؤEve Babitz Eve has an adoring girlfriend, an impulsive streak, and a secret fear that shéђةs wasting her brief youth with just one person. So one evening she posts some nudes online. This is how Eve meets Olivia, and through Olivia the charismatic Nathan. Despite her better instincts, the three soon begin a relationshiṕђؤone that disturbs Eve as much as it enthralls her.℗¡ As each act of their℗¡complicated, three-way℗¡affair unfolds across a cold and glittering New York, Eve is forced to confront the questions that most consume her: What do we bring to sex? What does it reveal of ourselves, and one another? And how do we reconcile what we want with what we think we should want?℗¡ In the way only great fiction can, Acts of Service takes between its teeth the contradictions written all over our ideas of sex and sexuality. At once juicy and intellectually challenging, sacred and profane, Lillian Fishmańђةs riveting debut is bold, unabashed, and required reading of the most pleasurable sort.
