My Mother: Madame Edwarda ; And, The Dead Man
Marion Boyars Publishers, Incorporated, 1989 - 222 pages
These three short pieces of erotic prose by one of France's most challenging and controversial authors fuse elements of sex and spirituality in a highly personal vision of the flesh. They present a world of sensation in which only the vaulting demands of disruptive excess and the anguish of heightened awareness can combat the stultifying world of reason and social order. Each of the narratives contains a sense of intoxication and insanity so carefully delineated by the author that it seems to infect the reader.
