Lust, sweat and longing

© Copyright. 2015.  All rights reserved.

Fresh and powerful. A series of three short novellas that explore a Japanese woman’s view of relationships with foreigners (African – American men).

“ I had always been able to turn heads, but not like this, so whenever we went out together I felt so uncomfortable” p81

Each story shares a different relationship and different insights. Pleasure, loss, lust, sex, communication issues, power, roles, longing, the culture gap, misunderstandings, learning new things from a partner that then become part of your life (places, people, food, objects, mannerisms, sayings, music, scents, clothing, etc), and the fragileness .
