The New York Times Book Review features my biography "Masters of Sex" in this Sunday's issue, Aug. 29, and the short capsule touches on some of the main points. Certainly it's newsworthy to point out that having sex with Masters was initially part of the job for Virginia Johnson, but I hope readers will realize there was a lot more to their relationship over time. Personally, I prefer the review from The New York Times daily book critic Dwight Garner, who grasped some of the humor in the book ( like Virginia's attempts to recruit women for their sex study in the lab) because
this provides a necessary contrast to some of the dramatic and sometimes tragic aspects of the book. No matter what, the book is testimony to the extraordinary work and personal relationship between Bill Masters and Virginia Johnson.
