WHAT A FIND,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Bride Stripped Bare (Paperback)
I was keen to read this novel after devouring the author's columns each week in the Mail on Sunday. I wasn't disappointed. Her writing is consistently fearless, original and thought-provoking. She is not afraid to speak her mind which is what I love about her journalism and her books. "The Bride Stripped Bare" is about many types of love - that between a husband and wife, a wife and a female friend, a mother and a child, a woman and her lover. But it's also about an everyday housewife finding sexual fulfillment in a most unconventional way, beyond all the compromises of married life. It's about a woman's deepest, darkest thoughts (dare I say every woman's!) I was seduced not only by the courage of the book but by the beauty of its prose. It's a wonderfully satisfying, deeply felt read.
