about this book

Professor David Kepesh wakes up one morning to find that he has been transformed into a 155-pound female breast. What follows, in bizarre yet hysterical Kafkaesque fashion, is a touching exploration of the full implications of Kepesh's metamorphosis--a daring, heretical book that brings us face to face with the intrinsic strangeness of sex and subjectivity.
