Combining spirituality with intense eroticism, wild and surreal humour with deadly serious intent, this book revolves around four characters - a husband, a wife, their ambiguous mentor, and a mythic seventeenth-century Iroquois virgin. The lives of the couple and the friend, F, are bound together by love, sex and a lunatic spirit of experimentation, their relationships a tangle of jealousies, obsessions and affections.
Cohen's brilliant and controversial book is characterized by a voice which is quite unique - lucid, tormented, nonchalant and wry. The result is not just an extremely funny novel, but an incredibly original and explicit examination of friendship, sex and spirituality.
