Lowering Clouds by Núria Añó

This product was recommended by Anonymous

Gabriele is a mature actress visits the city where she spent her adolescence. She is sixty-two years old, she married twice and is bisexual. One of her friends, Marianne, hardly remembers the actress because she has Alzheimer’s disease. The other friend is Silvia, a housewife that feels since years the monotony of marriage. Some time ago she said to her daughter that she could take care of their grandchildren for a while, but now she must care for them daily. When the actress arrives, it is difficult for her to find time for both. But fortunately, the actress awakens her to many things… “When I finished this novel, I thought the main character was the actress because I love classic movies and I was doing research on this for months. Later, I did readings and talks at universities and libraries. And most of the audience thought that Silvia was the main character. Often women understood very well what she felt and about the decision to leave home… This in contrast to male readers who were troubled about a mature woman leaving her husband and grandchildren for a new life.

The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion

This product was recommended by Muhammad Mateen Khan from PureVPN

From one of America’s iconic writers, a stunning book of electric honesty and passion. Joan Didion explores an intensely personal yet universal experience: a portrait of a marriage–and a life, in good times and bad–that will speak to anyone who has ever loved a husband or wife or child. This powerful book is Didion’s attempt to make sense of the “weeks and then months that cut loose any fixed idea I ever had about death, about the illness about marriage and children and memory, about the shallowness of sanity, and about life itself.”

Prostitute Laundry by Charlotte Shane

This product was recommended by Lesley Reynolds from Harley Street Skin Clinic

If you are in the frame of mind to flee into a magnificent and wistful mind, I would highly suggest Charlotte Shane’s Prostitute Laundry, which is the collection of her e-letter by the same name for several years. Although her other such series, NB, is also a sexy and whip-smart read, Prostitute Laundry especially deals with emotions of breakup and their aftermath. This is your book, if you want to examine female sexuality and be thoroughly absorbed while wallowing a bit, too.
