Product description


'An intelligent, dark, thorny but redemptive book about sex. Men, read it at your peril' --Robert Rowland Smith, author of Breakfast with Socrates

At last a book about female sexuality that isn't coy or vainglorious. With the Kisses of his Mouth is a fresh look at love, lust and longing in the 21st century. And it's funny too'
--Daisy Goodwin, author of My Last Duchess

'Honest, self-exposing... a candid exploration of the vulnerability of middle-age, as well as a fairly brutal examination of the human heart and its endless capacity to be broken... I want to stick up for this book. It is astoundingly brave. It is funny. It speeds along. It has magic at its heart - that indefinable sliver of human warmth and hope that all the best, most searching memoirs seem to have. Moreover, Roffey's somehow irrepressible willingness to share begins to seem generous, infectious even. As she finally manages to let go of her ex and view their intense, yet largely platonic, love affair as something to celebrate rather than regret, I found myself knocked off course in a rather moving and indescribable way...
Isn't this exactly what we need writers - the brightest, most adventurous and self-scrutinising ones, like Parks and Roffey - to do: to take that same darkness and turn it into something so blazingly alive that it can shine a little light on the rest of us?' --Julie Myerson, Observer 12/6

`From Craigslist to tantra classes, this is a heart breaking and, at times, explicit memoir of rediscovery'
--Elle Magazine, June issue

`A Sexual Odyssey; In a quest to heal her broken heart, Monique Roffey started seeking answers to some powerful questions. Does ruling out love have to mean ruling out sex? Can you have great sex without love? Can a great love survive without sex?' --Psychologies Magazine

'Thanks for Monique Roffey's `A Sexual Odyssey' [article]. Since my first relationship ended, I have had casual sexual relationships, and emotionally fulfilling, non-sexual relationships. Still, I have struggled to replicate the sexual fulfilment of my youth, something I believed could only change with a long-term partner. Roffey opened up the possibility that true sexual fulfilment can be experienced in the absence of a relationship - a breath of fresh air' --Psychologies Magazine, October issue
