I had the pleasure of reading S&D (Sex and Death in the American Novel) by Sara Martinez.
In one sentence I would describe this story as: A new age romance delved in layers of self discovery, intellectual discussions, and the continual influences a loved one can make on life, even after death.
The novel starts off with the line, “Call me Vivianna.” In the first page you discover the protag is a strong female writer and you get to read her creating what she writes best, gay erotica, until her thoughts are interrupted by the disapproving voice of her mother. the main character is witty, entertaining and full of snark, humorous despite the seriousness of the context. Her words often harsh to those around her are a brilliant display of Sara’s ability to add depth to Vivi as you discover her underlying anger towards her father. S&D gets a 4 out of 5 review from me because I love it and as long as you aren’t bothered by the literary warnings of strong language, sexual content, erotica, gay/three-some relationships then THIS book IS A MUST read!
GO GET IT! 4 out of 5
