Catherine Texier Russian Lessons
February 21, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Book Party and Reading with Paula Bomer, Chloe Caldwell, and Larissa Pham
Catherine Texier, the co-editor of the legendary downtown literary magazine of the 1980s, Between C and D, returns with a new novel of her own, Russian Lessons. A classic of erotic literary storytelling, Russian Lessons is as bold and compelling as Yukio Mishima’s The School of Flesh, or D.H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover.
Texier tells the story of a divorced mother who gets involved with a tempestuous thirty-year old Russian illegal immigrant. The edgy affair quickly turns into a darker bond of obsession and compulsion as Yuri constantly pushes the limits sexually and emotionally, driving their relationship to an intense and brutal pitch.
