Exquisite Corpse
by Penelope Bagieu

translation by Alexis Siegel

Twenty-something Zoe is stuck in a dead-end job, with a deadbeat boyfriend and no prospects for a better future. She doesn't read much, either, which is the reason she doesn't recognize the oddly reclusive writer she meets by chance.

It's also the reason that she doesn't know that the author she meets is supposed to be dead.

Sexy, poignant, and silly in spots. The ending made me laugh.

Recommended as a quick read for mature teens and adults.

adult, alcohol, bi-sexual issues, body parts, cussing, graphic novel, humor, nekkidness

The events may not have happened; still, the story is true.  --R. Silvern
