NUDE IN REVIEW #4



Nude was reviewed in Verbal Magazine in December. It is decently erotic, according to the reviewer Seán Mac Mahon! The pdf version has just been posted online here. The review is on page 27.

Here's a little extract (the best bit, naturally!):

"Of all literary genres writing about sex is the most difficult, having to find a path between the gross and the comic. The triumph of the author is that unhappy or distracted as her characters are their stories are told with an odd dignity and absolute conviction."
