"Wild...hilarious...so good." --Cosmopolitan, Best Books of the Year * "A laugh-out-loud bad romance for Gen Xers and an ode to misfits who just want to belong." --Oprah Daily * "Always interesting...too fun to stop." --Vanity Fair

"One of the funniest books of the last few years" (Los Angeles Times) about a sex therapist's transcriptionist and her affair with one of the patients.

Greta lives with her friend Sabine in an ancient Dutch farmhouse in Hudson, New York. The house is unrenovated, uninsulated, and full of bees. Greta spends her days transcribing therapy sessions for a sex coach who calls himself Om. She becomes infatuated with his newest client, a repressed married woman she affectionately refers to as Big Swiss.

One day, Greta recognizes Big Swiss's voice in town and they quickly become enmeshed. While Big Swiss is unaware Greta has eavesdropped on her most intimate exchanges, Greta has never been more herself with anyone. Her attraction to Big Swiss overrides her guilt, and she'll do anything to sustain the relationship...

"A fantastic, weird-as-hell, super funny novel" (Bustle), Big Swiss is both a love story and a deft examination of infidelity, mental health, sexual stereotypes, and more--from an amazingly talented, singular voice in contemporary fiction.

Carey says: In upstate New York, a transcriber for a local sex therapist falls madly in love with one of the practice's clients, a woman that she nicknames "Big Swiss." So funny and so original; this one is sure to make you laugh (and cringe!)
