The Monosexual is a funny, fast-paced, and engaging novel. The characters and the premise are zany and witty.”

—Dana Spiotta, author of Wayward, and Innocents and Others


“Vincent’s need to pathologize his own lost love with a self-diagnosis involving a made-up clinical term—thus both legitimizing his plight and making it as wholly his own as if it had never happened to any other guy before—strikes a nice 21st-century note and makes The Monosexual seem wittily suited to its times.”

—Jonathan Dee, author of A Thousand Pardons and The Privileges

    We kind of love the absurdity of this story. Vincent is a deeply confused fellow with his invented condition, monosexuality. As a premise for a story about a guy who has lost his one true love, it complicates things deliciously right up front, but Monti keeps piling on the complications, and we couldn’t help laughing out loud as things go from bad to worse for poor Vincent.
