The third review in my series of writing about sex explores the modern adulteress through two novels written by Leila Slimani and Jill Alexander Essbaum.
The second book review in my series of writing about sex is on Lisa Taddeo's Three Women. It's an astonishing piece of narrative journalism on female desire; the beauty and violence of yearning.
Nina Leger's award-winning book of erotic literature, The Collection, is the perfect start to my series of reviews on erotica and writing about sex.

My winter obsession with thrillers is finally abating, but there is one book that I cannot stop thinking about with a fresh rush of pleasure, excitement and adrenaline: Lionel Davidson's Kolymsky Heights.
