Overview

Voluptuous Pleasure is a collection of non-fiction whose title states that non-fiction does not exist. Sensuous and smart, ambiguous but incisive in their truths-these stories take you into brothels and bedrooms, kitchens and consciousness; they seduce you along the limits of non-fiction, making you question the veracity of anything you've ever read-or even experienced. Put your trust in the language itself: you can't trust reality, not anymore. If you've ever been confused about what "creative non-fiction' is, look no further: this book defines the genre.

Praise for Marianne Apostolides's previous work:

The Lucky Child is:
"exquisitly written.... a vibrant, multilayerd, image-righ book." Ð The Globe & Mail
"subtle in its execution, clear in its vision, with a narration that is both incisive and heartfelt.... Its unanswered questions, both real and imagined, will haunt long after its final page is turned." Ð Tess Fragoulis

Swim is:
"handled wish assured grace and dynamic lucidity."
Ð The Globe & Mail
"a brilliantly-structured stram-of-consciousness nevel... Fans of lyric prose will savour this intelligent, finely-crafted text."
Ð Canadian Literature
