This review is from: he & She (Kindle Edition)
“he & She” is the kind of sexually provocative novel that sucks you into the story with a flair for seductive and the rarely glimpsed side of life. Wayne Clark weaves a story of self-discovery, of loneliness, of obsession and desperation that really makes for a truly captivating read from beginning to end.
The story centers K, a man verging on 50 who finds himself floundering in a life that holds little meaning and a lack of passion. A random photo sends him on a journey that awakens his desires, launches him into a tumultuous relationship and tests the bounds of his own sexual desire and need for something… anything to awaken a spark of life inside him. K is a man that is authentic and relatable, drawing you into his sphere with little prompt and making you care about his struggles, desires and journey through to the finish line.
This is a wonderfully evocative novel that speaks to body the mind and the body, using a passionately provocative and intimate narrative tone to set the story alight in intriguing ways. The novel is fast-paced, but slow and seductive like honey… it brings up a well of emotions from uncomplicated lust to unnerving worry and everything in between.
Mr. Clark has done a fantastic job of crafting a thoroughly enjoyable and compelling novel that never lets up in it’s relentless pace. This was certainly an impressive introduction to the author that left me eager to see what else springs forth from the mind of Wayne Clark.
