Description

"Taking in the panoply of sexual desire, each tale shudders with full-frontal detail in a style that is both lyrical and forensically accurate."
In twelve interconnected stories as naked and primal as passion itself, "Quiver" explores the full spectrum of human sexuality in all of its variety and complexity. Spare yet evocative, this explicit collection depicts the pleasures of new and rediscovered love, lust, and obsession. In the flashes that blur the line between fantasy and reality, each story captures the spontaneous erotic experiences of a small group of middle-class acquaintances, showcasing sexual interludes of kaleidoscopic range--heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, exhibitionistic, and sadomasochistic. Each of these stories, alternating between a woman's point of view and a man's, a participant's and a voyeur's, expresses a passion for youth, excitement for the new, and nostalgia for love lost. Sensual and provocative, "Quiver" introduces a fresh voice to the genre of erotica.
For fans of Anne Rice's (A.N. Roquelaure) "Sleeping Beauty "trilogy or Sylvia Day's "Bared to You," Learner's writing will electrify readers with its every impulse.
