Format: Paperback
John Colleton, the pseudonym of Robert Walter Marks, wrote about a dozen highly atmospheric novels set mostly in Charleston, South Carolina, where he died in 1993. Perhaps their ethereal tone and laid back love-making are an acquired taste, but they are delightfully redolent of warm lazy days of sexual intrigue. `The Trembling of a Leaf' is one of the sequence of books that is written in the voice of John Dellmore, rather than the alternate narrator, Bill, John being the nephew of this book's principal character Amy. His erotic dalliances embrace Amy and her lovers, and the novel begins with a highly charged account of his aunt being undressed then whipped by the severe Miss Westcott. This proves to be the start of their liaison, which becomes steadily closer, until it is disturbed by the start of a relationship with Amy's daughter, Alicia, which becomes a marriage. This novel doesn't have quite the erotic charge of most of the others I've read, but it remains utterly charming, erudite and amusing.
