Description de l’éditeur
Dirty Girl, Broken Woman is an erotic tragedy set in Ronald Reagan’s 1980s America, when the Sexual Revolution was dying and the AIDS epidemic drove a final spike into love’s heart. Narrated by Tucker Brophy, a confused bartender/journalist/writer, it tells the story of Kay Weatherby, a stunning and highly sexual figure who is the dirty girl and broken woman of the tale. She breathes life into Tucker and brings him hope, as the flame of an orgiastic affair ignites between them in the small artists’ town of New Hope, Pennsylvania. Kay, a teacher, is about to receive her master’s in education and has a handsome boyfriend and house in the country, but she is dissatisfied with a certain aspect of her life. She turns to Tucker for fulfillment with the complete agreement of her boyfriend. Their passion burns so fiercely that she and Tucker get more than they bargain for, as the affair again and again turns even more wildly torrid and the relationship between them deepens. But there are ulterior motives lurking, and unseen intentions, and friends who have their own insoluble problems who impede and enable the affair, all while driving the story toward its shocking conclusion.
