    One thought on “Little Cat”

    1. I saw the film adaptation of Lie with Me, which is one of the two novels in this book collection The movie, an entry at the 2005 Toronto International Film Festival, depicts very graphic sexual scenes and I read somewhere that the act had been done for real and is about a nymphomaniac trying to draw the line between love and lust The other novel in this book, The Way of the Whore, talks about a 15 year old girl who has experienced sex at a tender age and is trying to come to terms with her sexua [...]

    2. I read this book based on a review I read in the Globe and Mail link is here theglobeandmail arts b and after liking Maidenhead This book is disturbing at times a hard read In her afterword, the author says that porn needs a story and I think that s what this book is.

    3. SEXUAL LANGUAGE, STRONG SEXUAL CONTENT 4 1 2 starsThis book holds two previously published and unnoticed short novels, reworked a little The first, Lie with Me , begins as the first person narrative of a young woman who repeatedly picks up men for sex, especially fellatio then turns to first person accounts by men who she brings home to an increasingly dirty apartment for sex that becomes increasingly wild and scary for the men She has one longer relationship that breaks down in sexual impasse.T [...]

    4. Although I recall quite liking Maidenhead, neither of these stories rang true for me They read like the first novels of a porn writer searching to make the connection to a deeper commentary on female sexuality which, frankly, they are but with a deeply nihilist perspective.

    5. This collected edition of Faith Berger s first two novels, edited and updated, is a difficult but worthwhile read.
