A wealthy father of two deserts his family in order to spend the night in a college girl's dorm room.

Blurbs:
  • "This sure-to-be-controversial first novel is told entirely in the second person by a series of nameless, interchangeable high-level businessmen. All of them share a predilection for young girls, which they describe in pornographic detail." Booklist
  • "An honest and brutal look into the minds of men. Whether they are rich or poor, white or black, powerful or powerless, and whether they admit it or not, men all want the same thing. This is a beautiful, beautiful book." James Frey
  • "Nic Kelman spares no one in his startling debut novel, girls. Not western culture. Not eastern culture. Not men. Not women. Not you, brave reader, not you." Victoria Redel
