Ah! If youth knew! If age could!
The truth is that desire evolves, tastes become more sophisticated—or sometimes ferociously simple—the mature pallet craves what young tastebuds are incapable of sensing. Age perceives time differently than youth, and can be more deliberate in going after what it wants. But the flame never truly burns out, though our bodies sometimes betray us, gravity takes its toll, and experience etches its history of stress, pain, and laughter in our very flesh.
“Nature,” the author tells us, “ waves a heraldic flag of symptoms as an alert to the crumbling decay of lost youth. Simon Conrad arrived at other side of my acrid years, appearing as an unlikely savior, triggering an abundance of plentiful hope. My cells sparkled like new growth in a spring garden and I allowed the sun to open my petals, reveal my nectar, and now they suck where the bee sucks . . .”
The five stories in this little collection artfully interlock to form a satisfying narrative totality. The writing is elegant and engaging for the most part, though the author gets carried away with the very sophistication of her prose from time to time. This is especially evident in the third story, “Lethal Lesson”, which wanders dangerously into the realm of effusive language. On balance, though, “Generation Game” is among the most deeply satisfying, thoughtful, perceptive, and pleasingly, deliciously mature erotic reading experiences of recent memory.
Like a necklace of rare rubies, 'Hot House' is the first of five intriguing, abstracted, beautifully balanced gems from the pen of one of today's best erotic writers. I say erotic, when what I mean is literary writers. If you want rumpy-pumpy, streams of vulgarities and plots fitted around sex, rather than sexual encounters evolving through plot, then Secret Narrative is not for you.
If, on the other hand, you like the velvet taste and bitter crunch of words in your mouth, the flavour of poetry, the smell of sensual intrigue, then 'Generation Game' is a swirling dance of a book with original ideas, thoughts and not a cliché to be seen. In describing Simon's father, she writes "…he has an ego the size of St Paul's Cathedral." A sheer joy.
All these stories are erotic and arousing. And explicit!
Loved them all.
