The Piano, by Jane Campion and Kate Pullinger

Leave a comment

On the subject of erotic fiction, some of the most gripping sex scenes I’ve ever read are from The Piano – A Novel, by Jane Campion and Kate Pullinger. Set during the mid-19th century on the West coast of New Zealand, it revolves around “Ada McGrath”, who arrives in New Zealand harbouring a passion for playing her piano, but does not speak, and her efforts to get back her piano from one of the locals, “George Baines”. It’s one of my all-time favourite novels because I understand the motivation of the characters; I have a great love of pianos, especially other people’s pianos. I gravitate towards them like some people do to other people’s cats. (Continue reading the review, or continue reading about the business of erotic romances.)
