“Ariel Schrag’s book is a kind of ‘Adam in Wonderland,’ with its young hero exploring worlds usually kept underground. An insightful, funny, and unexpected love story, told with wit and compassion.”
—Aimee Mann

“The sexual revolution is finally over, and Ariel Schrag has won. Adam is the most twisted, hilarious, and deeply gratifying reading experience I have had in a long time.”
—Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home and Are You My Mother?

“Hysterically funny and deliciously precise…Schrag writes as elegantly about sex parties as she does about the complicated emotions of awkwardness.”
—Nico Muhly, composer of Two Boys

“Sexually frank and frankly hilarious.”
—Ned Vizzini, author of It’s Kind of a Funny Story
