Two women leaf through a book of French slang, with its delicate and delicious mixing of food and sex. A man and a woman sit in a Parisian dive, caressing each other’s hands. Two lovers take late-night refuge in a beach cabana, their lovemaking lit by the lights of his automobile. These are glimpses of some of the haunting scenes and characters that people this sometimes wild, sometimes elusive exploration of desire’s magical and subversive qualities.

    Alright, so maybe not every page works to evoke the space before the moment of _____, but those that do are blindingly evocative, work up a fever. I'm thinking Anju Flying Streamers After. The Women Wash Lentils. You'd seriously have to die in the middle of the chapter to put the book down. It's language play, a hypothesis worth testing, worth reading. Think of jazz. It's not Coltrane's Ascension. It's that very same morning but with the shutters still closed. Maybe one day, Carole? And as far as the stab at post modern notions by a previous reviewer. Just Wikipedia the subject. Why would a person ever want to write Aureole in the face of traditionalist criticism? And the answer is not, "to be cool/different."

    I bought this book at the recommendation of, but was very disappointed. It is more a collection of seemingly unrelated, unfinished sentences rather than a book with a story and a plot. I read the first third, but ended up skimming the remainder. I guess, it all comes together in the end, but I'm not really sure. I was expecting a good story about women, instead I got something very difficult to follow

    Very different - but, very wonderful. It may not be a linear novel - with an actual 'story' - but it is an excellent read. Maso is an incredibly talented writer.
