Edward Hoagland
“Te best essayist of my generation.”—John Updike
 Admired by a pantheon o America’s greatest writers and considered one o our most prolic essayists, EdwardHoagland is in a class o his own. He came o age during our country’s literary heyday, learned to write the old-ashioned way—through direct experience in love, travel, and immersion in the natural world—and then dedicateddecades o his lie to prose that is not only powerul, but truly original. Now, more than fy years afer he rst beganpublishing, Hoagland brings his acuity to bear in this latest collection o essays.Published over the course o thirteen years in magazines such as
Harper’s
 ,
Orion
 , and
Outside
 , the essays in
Sex and theRiver Styx
explore themes o aging, love, and sex in deeply personal, ofen surprising ways through stories o Aricanmatriarchs, circus aerialists, and the wonder o wild places, along with the despair o losing them. Hoagland’s proseshines with the energy and intelligence that has characterized his work or decades and the wisdom o a man whosecuriosity about the world has given him, and us, a lietime o stories.
Sex and the River Styx
is an elegy or the marvelsHoagland has witnessed and wondered at over the course o his lie—and the wildness o nature, o love, and o loss.
