Night in the Afternoon is a breathless, lyrical, and starkly erotic novella of a young woman caught between two lovers. Though she shares a wonderfully tender and loving relationship with her boyfriend Gilles, she is unconsciously lured by a newspaper ad placed by a "masterful man" requesting a "docile" young woman. Answering it, she meets someone she will know only as the red-headed man. They begin a brief but intense affair -- she swearing, each time, that she will not see him again, only to feel her resolve crumbling before their next assignation. Reminiscent of Pauline Reage and Alina Reyes, this is an unforgettable story of an irresistible, forbidden desire. Joined here by several of Caroline Lamarche's short stories, Night in the Afternoon & Other Erotica is a delectable, sophisticated piece of literary erotica and a deeply satisfying exploration of illicit passion.
