Slippery When Wet

Martin Goodman

When Maggie's husband dies in the bed of another woman, she surges out of their stately home. She heads East, towards family wealth, touching down in Bangladesh. A beautiful young man, Sepen, welcomes her at the airport, and shepherds her through the culture shock of his country. As their relationship becomes sexual, he starts to crack her English veneer. When she becomes ill, she needs him. When she grows strong again, she needs him even more. Maggie journeys on to Thailand. In releasing her husband's ashes into the River Kwai, she steps clear of her past. It's too damn stupid to think of Sepen as part of her future. Surely it is! This is an intricate and revealing novel which plays with age, culture, loss and desire to reveal the journeys across those boundaries.

Amazon.co.uk Review:

breathtaking intimate sexy adventure, 28 Feb 2006

Slippery When Wet embraces riches and poverty, aristocracy of birth to aristocracy of the spirit, being wealthy in material terms to being rich in matters of the heart. It's an extraordinary scope and a journey told with a compulsive page turning beat. I'm ordinarily not much for love stories, but this one is so far beyond the margins of the ordinary that I went with it willingly. Most novels just explore our neuroses. Okay that can be amusing, but I can't take book after book of it. Or shelf after shelf of commercial thrillers either. When I find a real book I'm enthralled, and this is a REAL BOOK. It takes you breathlessly to the inner edge of the characters and lets you feel your own edges. And what characters they are. The lead female character starts out as exactly the sort of bored lost wealthy woman you've met a cocktail party. Unlike most of them she hasn't given up on life and plunges into the grit of Bangladesh, where she meets a real man one third her age and boredom is left far behind forever. And what a character he is, drawn with a tender understanding of life in teeming Bangladesh, he comes alive with warmth and sexiness and just a touch of danger. I don't cry at books, okay very often anyway. But I have to admit I cried at the end of this one, tears of relief, tears of recognition. This book is a must read. I've already read it four times. Go for it!

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
