Making Love in Spanish
Publisher: Anvil Publishing, Inc.
A novel about a jetsetting, intelligent, and driven Filipina named Maxine. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, she is a mother of three and has just survived both an acrimonious divorce and a twit of a husband. Now free and approaching fifty, she reflects on and narrates her various love affairs and sexual encounters that are curiously all with Spanish speaking men. At times, blithely witty, explicitly erotic, and hilariously outrageous, the novel is told from the point of view of a woman who rises from both her recent past and conservative upbringing, as she tries to get both her sexual and moral bearings in what is suddenly a brave, new life.
