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, Ana├»s 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.

    Comment on this review

    Nikki Gemmell

    Nikki Gemmell has written four novels, Shiver, Cleave, Lovesong, The Bride Stripped Bare and The Book Of Rapture, and one non-fiction book, Pleasure: An Almanac for the Heart. Her work has been internationally critically acclaimed and translated into many languages.

    In France she's been described as a female Jack Kerouac, in Australia as one of the most original and engaging authors of her generation and in the US as one of the few truly original voices to emerge in a long time.

    The French literary review "Lire" has included her in a list of what it calls the fifty most important writers in the world - the ones it believes will have a significant influence on the literature of the 21st century. The criteria for selection included a very individual voice and unmistakeable style, as well as an original choice of subject. Nikki Gemmell was selected along with such novelists as Rick Moody, Zadie Smith, Jonathan Safran Froer, Rohinton Mistry, Tim Winton, Colum McCann, Michel Faber and Hari Kunzru among others.

    Born in Wollongong, Australia, she now lives in London.
