A Shrink Writing Sadism, Masochism and BDSM

A Bestiary of Unnatural Women - Ashley Zacharias

I'm not going to say much about the actual content, as these are shorts and that would give away too much.

However, I absolutely loved this book, for me it went from hilarious to tearjerking, never anything less than erotic, even if sometimes only in minute places, and completely, totally fresh! That was what delighted me most: these are stories you haven't read a hundred times before, they are original, fantastic and in a sense very real, very down to earth.

The author needs to work on her blurb, for it is a pity these stories are obviously read by the wrong crowd. This is rather dark, and no easy erotica or even overblown, tropey Fifty Shades-style erotic romance. If there's one author I'd compare these stories to content-wise then it is Remittance Girl. Not as polished as her, but as original and deeply erotic as her.
