ABOUT THIS BOOK
Now in its first English translation, The Way It Works with Women is a brutal and relentless exploration of the dark side of desire. Shocking and poetic, the novel is composed of bits of dialogue: outbursts and exchanges spoken in the night and expressing naked physical and psychological yearning; murmurs of fragmentary declarations spoken in deserted doorways and dark hotel rooms. Grounded firmly in the literary tradition exemplified by Pierre Jean Jouve and Georges Bataille, The Way It Works with Women is a stunning introduction to one of the most unusual writers in contemporary French literature.
