Beautifully written exploration of sex modernism and life br br Content aside I really loved the narrative style The narrative wanders all over the place moving the story forwards slowly through the eyes of different characters speaking of their perspective on the past or present At times I thought I was reading a memory only to realise that what I had just read was an imagined version of events Threads that are mentioned in passing and rewoven into the story later on and there are twists and turns that I couldn't forsee br br The story itself is odd all the characters have their own flaws but are lively even when they are living mundane lives Sex is also woven into the story in unexpected places more so towards the beginning of the novel when Heloise is an adolescent and young adult although this sexuallity is present right up to the end Many acts that could be are considered deviant are narrated without detail or embarrassment which is refreshing The characters know what turns them on and they aren't afraid to tell the reader if not their partner about itbr br I'd like to emphasise that this is definitely not erotica yes sexuality is a large theme but it's treated without reverence and gets the same amount of detail as all other parts of the narrative; a walk home from school is treated with possibly more detail than Heloise's seduction of Lawrence

Corsica the mountains of Algeria to the art galleries of New York this subversive novel examines love at its most shocking and violent And in Héloïse as baby nymphet teenage mother celebrated photographer and wife we have a truly provocative heroi. Héloïse is Bald Héloïse is also one of the most loathsome and annoying characters I have come across lately in a book I loathed this book Lolita it isn't De Turkheim loves useless details and this book is full of massive wholepage paragraphs which doesn't make it easy to read Also it sits uneasy with me that the author has tried to spin a story whereby a baby falls in love with a paediatrician and tries to win his heart as a cute whimsical tale Furthermore the author uses 911 as a 'humorous' plot device

Héloïse is BaldBut Lawrence is not all he appears and while Héloïse begins injuring herself so that he will stitch her back together every other woman in her family also seems to be under his spellReaching from the elegant salons of Paris to the golden sands of. Extraordinarily provocative A very controversial interpretation of a highlysensitive issue in the fluid morality of 21st century western society sexual contact by adults with 'children' under the legal moral age of consent Heloise without accents is a Lolita for the present day a wild child who is born with demanding 'physical' urge apparently I found this a disturbing read indeed with its preoccupation with pediatric doctor Lawrence the Humbert figure & his distorted relationships with all the women in his life most shockingly with the teenage 'temptress' Heloise over a decade or so The jagged but punitive ending barely excuses the excesses of the previous 200 pages The novel satirises well the crazed world of contemporary art the uncomfortable & shameless sexualisation of teenagers in the media & the inevitable cultural clash between French & American social mores I need more time to digest this oversauced undercooked meal of Emilie de Turckheim's vivid imagination; my literary palate is spoiled for weeks with strange & recurring aftertastes of something transgressively immoral My reactions to the thorny subject of such illicit relationships which pricks at my social conscience are perfectly acceptable; dismay alarm & a wave of real disuiet The translation from the French is immaculate Read at peril to your peace of mind
