An Almanac for the Heart - Friendship, Love, Loss, Heartbreak, Sex, Passion

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

An Almanac for the Heart The Bride Stripped Bare exposed female desire as no other book had; raw intoxicating and breathtakingly libidinous. Now Pleasure looks set to do the same with more secret women's business - dealing candidly with everything from Brazilian waxes to 'secret' underwear from coping with broken hearts to what makes a perfect partner (a checklist to cut out and keep) from advice on the friends who flatten you (frenemies) to the importance of empathy. Both bold and intimate Pleasure is a book Nikki Gemmell says she looked for as a gift for a cherished friend - and never found. So she decided to write it herself. Encased in a stunning design package with beautiful feminine illustrations this is an ideal gift for your best friend aunt sister or fairy godmother.

    The first time I picked this up I didn't really get into it. The next time around I couldn't put it down. I really enjoyed this book and I recommend it as a gift for your Girl Friends. Inspiring and Uplifting.

    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.
