'narrative lightness, an engaging voice, a sense of humour'

On Getting Off just came out in the UK, and received a very generous review in The Irish Times. Laura Kennedy writes:

It would be so easy for Young to lapse into a lazy, binary gender analysis of how we live and relate to others as sexual beings, but he manages for the most part to avoid doing so. Perhaps most refreshingly, this is a philosophy book that is not for philosophers. They will find much in it to think about, but it is written for a general audience. It has a narrative lightness, an engaging voice, and a sense of humour in the weight and absurdity of its own mission that makes it a really pleasurable read.
