Review: The Sexual Life of Catherine M, Catherine Millet

This is a brave work by anyone’s standards. Catherine M is a Parisian art critic. By day, she is an art expert and well-respected member of society. By night, she frequents clubs where she fulfils her need for sex with multiple partners, often at the same time.

What I loved about this book is that despite the absence of sensuality at times, I found the narrative extremely arousing. The descriptions of some of the scenes had me disappearing for some ‘me’ time with astonishing regularity.

For sure, this is a book that will remain on my physical bookshelves for years to come. It’s fairly well-thumbed and will no doubt be read countless times more…
