Diana: A Diary in the Second Person

Diana: A Diary in the Second Person - Russell Smith I picked up this book not as much for the content but because I was intrigued with the author’s reason for writing it. It is definitely erotica, so for those offended by gratuitous sexual descriptions, don’t even pick it up. Mr. Smith, a self-confessed man about town, did a little impromptu survey and found women thought words could be as erotic as touch … hence he gathered favourite fantasy stories from ladies of his acquaintance and combined them into one character whose adventures form the book … very successfully in my opinion. Because “women don’t want to read erotica written by a male author” this book was originally published under a female pseudonym. It was worth the read (blushing – I cannot deny that I enjoyed the book), but I enjoyed the “back story” just as much.
