Description - SEXUAL LIFE OF CATHERINE M_ THE by Catherine Millet
Written in spare, elegant prose, 'THE SEXUAL LIFE OF CATHERINE M.' is the autobiography of a well-known Parisian art critic who likes to spend nights in the singles clubs of Paris and in the Bois de Boulogne where she has sex with a succession of anonymous men. Unlike many contemporary women writers, there is no guilt in Millet's narrative, no chronicles of use and abuse- on the contrary, she has no regrets about a life of sexual activity. Catherine Millet's writing is a subtle reflection on the boundaries of art and life and she uses her insights on the role of the body in modern art to set the scene for her multiple sexual encounters. A phenomenal bestseller in France where it has sold over 400,000 copies and in all other European countries in which it has been published, 'The Sexual Life of Catherine M.' is very much a manifesto of our times - when the sexual equality of women is a reality and where love and sex have gone their own separate ways. Like The Story of O, it is a truly shocking book that captures a decisive moment in our sexual history.
