I Take You | [Nikki Gemmell]

I Take You

Nikki Gemmell’s concluding instalment is a modern-day version of Lady Chatterley’s Lover, set in Notting Hill, involving a banker’s wife and the gardener of a local communal garden. It begins by describing with scorching honesty and delicious cheekiness a couple in the thick of marriage - people who still fancy each other rotten, and how they find a way of keeping the sex aflame amid the demands of work/family/life. And yet this wife, safe within her marriage, is bursting with unfulfilled desire. Unfulfilled, that is, until the communal gardener enters, and their affair accelerates to its tense, shuddering conclusion.

What the Critics Say

Praise for The Bride Stripped Bare:

"Starkly explicit…richly descriptive with a fast-paced narrative" (Sunday Telegraph)

"Nikki Gemmel's prose has a wonderful sensuousness…witty…a subtle portrait of a modern and rather alienating marriage" (Lisa Appignanesi, Independent Magazine)

"Must read…A tale of sexual awakening for the dark horse in all of us" (Tatler)

"The sex is well-written…Gemmell is refreshingly straightforward about the act" (Melanie McGrath, Evening Standard)

"Easy to read, hard to put down. Keep an extinguisher handy" (Closer)

"A page-turner" (Evening Standard)

"A bored housewife embarks on a life of sexual pleasure…The sex is rude and raunchy and "exactly where you want it"" (Elle)

"Personal dilemmas are bravely explored; thoughts and fantasies about sex and infidelity, which most women have learned to keep to themselves, are laid bare on the page in all their shocking glory…brutal, brilliant and addictive" (Glasgow Herald)
