9780061122163: Taming the Beast (P.S.)

Sarah Clark?s life is irrevocably changed at the age of fourteen when her English teacher, Mr Carr, seduces her after class. Their affair is illegal, erotic, passionate and dangerous ? a vicious meeting of minds and bodies. But when Mr Carr?s wife discovers the affair he has to choose between them and moves to another city with his family. Sarah is devastated and from that day on her life is defined by a series of meaningless, self-abasing sexual encounters, hoping with each man that she will experience the same delicious feelings she had with Mr Carr. Seven years later Daniel Carr walks back into Sarah?s life and she is drawn once again into the destructive relationship. Is Sarah strong enough to ?tame the beast??

Review:

?I was very impressed by Taming the Beast? Without being prurient, Maguire heads into extraordinarily dark psychosexual territory, withholding any easy answers? Independent ?It?s a bleak, uneasy book, albeit powerfully written. It is also shockingly compelling? The Observer Magazine ?An uncompromising look at sex, desire and unrequited love... Carefully narrated, this is a brilliant meditation on sex and power? City Life

Book Description:

It was never just sex...
