Clearly riding on the 50 Shades wave, but with a more literary and quirkily told explict story it has found a fresh niche in this quickly crowding market. Meeting every Tuesday in a hotel in the Pigalle district of Paris, this is the story of Ellie’s sexual awakening at the hands of the 45 year old family friend she calls ‘Monsieur’.

Synopsis

Monsieur by Emma Becker

From their initial online encounter, through a shared appreciation of erotic literature, to the highly explicit and shocking story of their brief relationship, Emma Becker charts the labyrinths of lust of Ellie and 'Monsieur', set against the murky landscape of Facebook, text messages and the Pigalle hotel room in which they meet every Tuesday morning. Why do we do things we know are wrong? Why do May-to-December romances invariably go wrong? Why does the allure of forbidden sex cloud our judgements? Emma Becker doesn't come up with all the answers, but provides a fascinating and poignant tale, which will turn Monsieur into the new Lolita .

Reviews

Already been dubbed the new Lolita. We think it's living up to the hype. * Irish Tatler * From the searing of the soul to sex addiction, Emma Becker attentively explores the dangers of passion with an incandescent, beautifully crafted style. * Grazia * Between sexual frenzy and emotional fragility, we have here a unique self-portrait of the 20 year-old girl who discovers the world with insolence. * Standard * A raw and delicate, Colette meets Catherine Millet type of novel * Le Figaro Magazine *
