Seller ID: sm068


Set in Bruges, Paris and the Holloway Road, these are provocative and challenging stories. Powerfully and tightly written, these stories are sexy and evocative stuff – you can smell the beaches and the bedrooms that feature in the stories, and see the dead leaves blowing alongside the canal in Bruges as clouds race overhead.

Seller ID: smlolita


The subject matter, of a middle-aged man desiring a young girl, a nymphet of 12 at the beginning of their affair, was so outrageous that the sheer delicacy and also the wit of the writing was hardly commented on.
