"There are multiple ways to view success in life, and Kit's journey through sexuality is not about preservation of the body, but of the soul... A remarkable investigation of a man attempting to save himself from stagnation." ~IndieReader / 5 stars
"... a stylish piece of literary fiction... intellectually engaging throughout. A finely drawn portrait of desire in its fall and winter seasons." - BlueInk Review
"Clark uses the narrative to explore how diverse and intricate sexuality can be. The BDSM scenes are raw and realistic without being too much for newcomers... The story builds upon itself aggressively, never veering away from the gritty conclusion that barrels ahead as the final pages come to an end. All in all, this is a delectable novel about a man exploring his unknown sexual fantasies at the price of possibly losing his true self along the way."- Red City Review
"It's a great psychological story with a deviant undertone... it will make you think. Excellent." - Kelly Smith Reviews
... Wayne Clark delivered a must-read novel by proficiently building Kit Cayman's character (...) to show how the different events affected his life, leading him to a different life path and ending in a very surprising climax. Wayne Clark crafted an emotional story of a man in emotional turmoil and the level of skill with which the story is written made it a captivating read. It kept me engrossed up to the end." -Faridah Nassozi, Readers' Favorite (5 stars)
About the Author
Award-winning author Wayne Clark was born in 1946 in Ottawa, Ont., Canada, but has called Montreal home since 1968. Woven through that time frame in no particular order have been interludes in Halifax, Toronto, Vancouver, Germany, Holland and Mexico. By far the biggest slice in a pie chart of his career would be labelled journalism, including newspapers and magazines, as a reporter, editor and freelance writer. The other, smaller slices of the pie would also represent words in one form or another, in advertising as a copywriter and as a freelance translator. However, unquantifiable in a pie chart would be the slivers and shreds of time stolen over the years to write fiction.

To be honest, this is not my type of book. In the opening pages the content was seductive enough that I felt I may be in for a new version of fifty shades. I was pleasantly surprised though to find this novel extremely well written and thought provoking. While the dialogue is lacking in substance, the characters inner monologues take the reader through the story very nicely and develop the plot just as well. While there are some portions of the story that are meant for only an adult audience, the story itself is one of a inner exploration and an attempt to regain the youth that Kit had lost in his rather meaningless life. While not my genre of choice, I recommend this book to any reader of psychological fiction or anyone interested in something just outside of ordinary.
K embodied the word generation power of this highly talented author who masterfully described K ' s daydreams, fantasies, thoughts and fears. The reader is the audience of this image rich work of literary art as shown in the head of K. The words play out on paper in descriptions and dialogue fit for a psychological and philosophical handbook, animated by a soul afraid of nothingness.
K earns his living through writing, a translator in this novel. The author too has training and decades of writing experience as his protagonist K. Clarke, the author of this novel, is a master thinker and creates K, his sexual alter ego.
The subject we enjoy in this story is chiefly that of a dominatrix world which leads K to an obsessive dependence on his Egyptian Princess, a beautiful woman in her late 20 ' s. With each kinky session, the K coin is flipped and we find heads, She wins control and he, the tail, is spread into submission until dominance turns into love and fear for rejection. He is around 50 years old and needs through an assortment of thoughts and fantasies to relive her animation and burning fuel.
As readers we examine our own relationships in the elegant words of the masterful and polite author:
Do we, as men, have elements attractive to her or does she take us for a ride?
Does mankind die when his sexual drive dies?
Can we reinvent ourselves in our sexual world?
Can we transform ourselves against time, such that two lives (he and She) do not lose each other because of an age difference?
Can we synchronize body and mind to experience harmony and peace?
When we relinquish control and ride a wave of domination and spanking fantasies, do we meet a new hill with new horizons?
Can we take the irrecoverable leap when we feel as the Egyptian Princess is saying: "Do not come too close to see, feel, too much of me" ?
K wanted reincarnation of his sexual self and the author allows us to explore all his feelings: frustration, images of his body and soul being plundered by women; unattainable desires; murky life with alcohol; and so much more.
The author allows us to meander the mind of K while he juggles words. This word machine enables us to describe "it" that evades us, better than what we, the readers ever could describe.
Images like : "The cavernous fear of closeness" and "She gave birth to a new world inside him" and " he can no longer stop being in love", make this book special. I loved to read it.

This story really takes off once Kit delves into the discovery of BDSM, as told in graphically detailed flashbacks through his eyes. Clark’s writing is elegant and tasteful, and his characters are realistic, not always likable, yet ultimately you find yourself in their corner, rooting for them—especially Kit. Although this is an erotic story, there’s also a good amount of substance there, as well. If you’re looking for a different type of story with a great plot, I strongly suggest you check out HE & SHE.
