After Claude by Iris Owens
Hmmm...I think I've recommended this book before, but I have no problem recommending it again, because it's the kind of book that you can't recommend enough because almost nobody I know has ever even heard of it. The author, Iris Owens, is wickedly funny and, prior to writing this book, wrote pornographic novels for an erotic press based out of Germany. Which, German porn does not mess around. So you know that Owens is pretty sex-positive. This book is dark and funny and cruel and has a truly insane, narcissistic narrator named Harriet, and it will be fun in your book club to see who identifies with Harriet and who does not. Those that do are clearly quite damaged and, therefore, are probably the most fun to get drunk and do wild and fucked-up things with—things like having a topless book club, you know? Anyway, enjoy this book. It's impossible not to, unless you're dull and humorless. And you're not, are you? No. I didn't think so.
