From the author of Leaving Las Vegas, "a sensitive and understated novel" about a lonely law clerk yearning for human connection (Booklist). Here is the simple life of Carroll, a middle-aged, unmarried, friendless man whose only joy is watching beautiful women dance. Terribly shy and unable to socialize with the people around him, Carroll's fascination with the women at his favorite strip club, Indiscretions, is totally innocent. He finds solace in the routine, the rules, and the predictability of the action. But when his desire for a particular dancer takes him one step too far, his entire life threatens to crumble. Since his debut novel Leaving Los Vegas, which was made into the film starring Nicholas Cage and Elizabeth Shue, John O'Brien has been one of the great literary voices of American loners and outcasts. Perhaps his most interior and intense novel, Stripper Lessons is a powerful story of one man's obsessive search to belong.
