Crackling with eroticism and suspense, the seductive new
book that everyone is talking about probes the secret
world of phone sex and one woman who becomes empowered by
what she discovers there. Not since Erica Jong's Fear of
Flying has a novel so masterfully mined the relationship
between sexuality and identity. On the surface, Julia
Sterling's life seems blessed. Married to a renowned
psychiatrist and living on Manhattan's tony Upper East
Side, Julia deeply loves her stepson and is forging a
career as a journalist. When a writing job exposes her to
the world of phone sex, Julia glimpses a world that stirs
her erotic fantasies but threatens her carefully
constructed reality. As she explores her emotional and
sexual connections to the men she knows and several she
will never meet, she confronts evil, perversity, and her
own passions. Tracing the currents of desire, illusion,
and psychological manipulation, Lip Service is an
astonishingly vivid glimpse into one woman's inner life.
At the same time, this electrifying thriller grips the
reader as it builds toward a shattering climax. M.J. Rose
has delivered a debut novel unlike anything yet
experienced in erotic fiction. Lip Service establishes her
as a powerful storyteller.
