Description

Catherine Millet s best-selling "The Sexual Life of Catherine M." was a landmark booka portrait of a sexual life lived without boundaries and without a safety net. Described as eloquent, graphicand sometimes even poignant by "Newsweek," and as [perhaps] one of the most erotic books ever written by "Playboy," it drew international attention for its audacity and the apparently superhuman sangfroid of Millet and her partner, Jacques Henric, with whom she had an extremely public and active open relationship. Millet s follow-up answers the first book s implicit question: how do you avoid jealousy? I had love at home, Millet explains. I sought only pleasure in the world outside. But one day she discovers a letter in their apartment that makes clear Jacques is seriously involved with someone else. "Jealousy" details the crisis provoked by this discovery, and Millet s attempts to reconcile her need for freedom and sexual liberation with the very real heartache that Jacques s infidelity causes. If The Sexual Life of Catherine M. seemed to disregard emotion, Jealousy is its radical complement: the paradoxical confession of a libertine who discovers that love, in any of its forms, can have a dark side."
