ROXANNE: Who led her lovers to the Gates of Paradise and her citizens to the Sunny Uplands
Roxanne was happily married, with two children, when she decided to find out what it would be like to make love with another man, and got caught. Sasha took off and went to work at the United Nations in Brussels. Left alone, Roxanne embarks on a sexual journey and on a political career, inevitably intertwined. For want of a friend and a confidante, she talks to an old and elaborate mirror, which is her only guide. Political ambition combined with a hunger for intimacy drives her through a remarkable course in life and wonderful adventures of the body and mind. In the centre of her being, Roxanne remains empty; her children have long gone, and she never replaces her hunger for Sasha. In an unexpected turn, as her political career reaches its zenith, she is reunited with her daughter, now a young woman on a journey of her own. The pieces settle into place. Roxanne is an erotic novel. The events and the people are completely fictional. However, the lovemaking is realistic. The descriptions are not invented, and they are achievable by any attentive reader with an agreeable partner.
