The Tryst by Monique Roffey review – perfectly judged erotic fiction
A lthough women are increasingly writing and reading sexually explicit fiction, there are still relatively few erotic masterpieces written by women. In her novel The Tryst , Monique Roffey is writing for herself, the book forming part of a wider exploration of sex and sexuality which she also covered in a memoir, With the Kisses of His Mouth. Erotic literature is vulnerable to a number of stylistic weaknesses. It is, by its very nature, repetitive, while descriptions of sexual ecstasy can become unintentionally comic if they try too hard to convince the reader of the power of sex to transport. Happily, The Tryst is no contender for the Bad Sex award : the sexual descriptions walk the line between transcendent and plain dirty with perfect judgment.
