Overview

In these stunning, highly charged and imaginative short stories on the theme of sexual passion, Lucy Cavendish displays formidable literary skill at conveying female sexuality. In 'Big Black Dog', the family pet represents a guilty conscience (and more) as the protagonist conducts an affair under her husband's nose. In 'Lamu', a woman hoping to start a family with her husband gets carried away by the heat of Africa and worries about the watchful gaze of a small boy. In 'Take It', a woman is stifled by the atmosphere of her wealthy home in Argentina and finds release with Angelo, her servant's attractive young nephew, who handles the polo ponies so well. In 'La Luna', a woman displays a fierce and deadly passion for any man attracted to her. Beautifully written, once read, these stories will never be forgotten.

Meet the Author

Lucy Cavendish was born in the Home Counties. After school, she spent a year teaching in Kenya and began a love affair with Africa that is still on-going now. In fact, she has lived all over the world from Argentina to Zimbabwe, New York to Sydney, all of which are reflected in her stories. It was her endless thirst for adventure that won her a first award in journalism as Cosmopolitan’s Young Travel Writer of the Year. Since then, she has gone on to carve a very successful career in journalism writing for The Times, the Telegraph, the Guardian, the Daily Mail and many women’s magazines. She writes a column for Stella magazine for the Sunday Telegraph. A few years ago, she was asked to take her experiences as a mother, a wife, a partner and an ex-partner to write a fictitious book. Her heroine, Samantha Smythe, is loosely based on herself but, as the Samantha Smythe trilogy grew, so her characters and story lines became increasingly less associated with her life. Her fourth novel, Jack and Jill, is part of the Quick Reads series.
Lucy lives in Oxfordshire with her four children, two dogs, two cats, a horse, a pony, two goldfish and four chickens. Lucy is thinking of getting a goat.
