Sixty-one vignettes record the imaginative varieties of this solitary activity in prose that is playful, intimate, urgent, quirky, and humane.

The soloists range in age from nine to eighty- the locales from Australia to Zaire- the means of masturbation from the commonplace to the bizarre. The young man in Gaza with his hair dryers, the woman in Manilla with her cello bow, the long-eared bat, the charioteer, the candelabra - this swirl of unlikely individuals and objects is brought together in such a way that it floods a world born fresh once more.

The late Georges Perec, in describing Singular Pleasures as a great ecumenical work, rightly underscored the essential generosity of an apparently scandalous enterprise, where in the act of making love with ourselves we throw our imaginations open to a union with anything the universe itself has fended and fostered into being. The book is illustrated throughout with watercolors by Francesco Clemente that offer an intriguing counterpoint to Mathewss fictions.
