Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. VOLUPTUOUS PLEASURE: THE TRUTH ABOUT THE WRITING LIFE is a collection of nonfiction whose title states that nonfiction does not exist. These stories, by acclaimed author Marianne Apostolides, are sensuous and smart, ambiguous but incisive in their truths. VOLUPTUOUS PLEASURE will take you inside brothels and bedrooms, kitchens and consciousness; it will seduce you along the limits of nonfiction, making you question the veracity of anything you've ever read—or even experienced.
Marianne Apostolides is the author of six books, three of which have been translated. She's also a recipient of the Chalmers Arts Fellowship and a finalist for the KM Hunter Award. Her previous non-fiction work, VOLUPTUOUS PLEASURE, was listed among the Top 100 Books of 2012 by The Globe & Mail. Marianne lives in Toronto.Author City: TORONTO, ON CAN
