The long-awaited follow-up to the international bestselling phenomenon THE BRIDE STRIPPED BARE, WITH MY BODY is an intensely personal tale of sexual awakening as well as one wife′s story about every woman′s marriage.
Locked into an unending cycle of school runs, laundry and meal times, a wife despairs of ever finding a way through her family to her own identity. Even her husband, whom she loves, has never reached the core of her. In desperation, she flees her comfortable life to revisit an old love affair -- an extremely passionate, transforming one. The consequences will be devastating, liberating and entirely unexpected ...
Told in Nikki Gemmell′s distinctively lyrical style, this is beautiful, literary writing at its best. Exquisitely raw, emotional and bold, it is deeply resonant of the classic French erotic writings of Colette, Anaïs Nin and Marguerite Duras, but with a modern and provocative twist.
Praise for THE BRIDE STRIPPED BARE:
′Vividly conveys the pathos and the privacies of the body and its desires′ SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

Comments about With My Body:
This is Nikki's follow on to a bride stripped bare, which I thoroughly enjoyed,however I found this novel quite explicit, where I didnt think it needed to be , and I could not connect with the characters as I did in a bride stripped bare.
