Nothing Natural

Jenny Diski

Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

* Reissue of one of Jenny Diski's most powerful early novels, on the theme of power and collusion in a sado-masochistic relationship

* New afterword from the author examining the passions her story roused in its readers

'Nothing Natural centres with illuminating precision on a sado-masochistic relationship. Rachel is in her thirties, a single parent admired by her friends for her self-sufficiency ... But when she meets the compelling, sinister Joshua she discovers another side to herself ... In a sense which horrifies her, she has found herself ... An outstandingly well-written novel' New Statesman

An addictive story of a dangerous love affair with a shocking denoument, this is a complex examination of the relations between the sexes at their most combatative and collusive. It is a clever book with much to tell us about the nature of desire and what should or should not be permissable.
