1 Review
Fifteen erotic stories rife with furtive sexual encounters, voyeurism, and daring imagery. Santos-Febres' vigorously edgy and subversive tales tweak conventional pieties and memorably sketch such unconventional souls as the woman who daily spies on a male neighbor showering, another who discovers by adjusting her perfume how to control men's attraction to her, and the lyrical ministrations of a romantic embalmer.
