Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Eva Marquand, heroine of this buoyant, erotically energized novel (by the author of Love Me Tender and co-editor of Between C & D ), came to New York from France at 17, and is ensconced in romantically seedy Times Square. Eva's lusty lover Johnny is a tough and tender leather-clad guitarist, an ``urban warrior born of the asphalt jungle.'' Supporting her young daughter Mimi (the fruit of a four-year liaison with black musician Frank Jackson, who deserted her), Eva both revels in her femininity and feels captive to it, her identity determined by her sexual and maternal needs and the blood of her womb--the title's significance. The matriarchal theme gets support from the role of Eva's older friend Albertine, who cares for Mimi. Cabaret singer Eva pursues a phone-sex sideline as ``Lola, the fantasy queen,'' which sours when a client, possibly an AIDS-infected rapist, follows her to her hotel. When cool, manipulative Frank turns up, demanding Mimi, Eva's already precarious world is thrown into chaos. French-born Texier, now living in New York, dedicates the novel to her compatriot Celine, whose visceral frankness and sordid vision of urban life clearly inspired her. However, Texier's message is more upbeat. (Apr.)
Library Journal
An abundance of sleaze, sex, and sordid slang mar this tale of a woman living in New York City. To make ends meet Eva sings in a nightclub and from her home runs a sex hotline (verbal sex in excruciating detail over the telephone lines). In her spare time she engages in torrid sexual encounters with her lover, farms out her daughter to another woman for daily care, and resents the arrival of the child's biological father, who is looking for a relationship with the daughter he has refused to acknowledge previously. There is a story to be told here, but Texier hides it behind the nasties of Eva's existence as well as the device of alternating narrators. This is only for the ultrasophisticated reader.-- Jo Ann Vicarel, Cleveland Heights-University Heights P.L., Ohio
