Stories of Sex and Love

Book - 2010
Rate this:

A jilted lover skirts the edges of time and place as she walks the streets of London at night; a woman returns to the scene of her honeymoon without her husband; a bereft daughter traces her relationship with her mother as she slowly packs up a house in the aftermath of death.

In this brilliant collection of intimate and intense stories, Michele Roberts takes us to nineteenth century Venice, 1970s England, modern-day France and beyond.
Here too are Tristram and Isolde with a twist; George Sand, sick in Venice with her unfaithful lover; and the bitter maid taking care of young Adele: both forced out of Rochester's home to make way for the passions of Jane Eyre. . .

With her subversive, often witty, exploration of women's desires, memory, grief, love and betrayal, Michele Roberts demonstrates once again why she remains one of Britain's most invigorating writers.
