YOUR NAME WRITTEN ON WATER, winner of an international contest for erotic literature in Spanish and a bestseller in Spain, is a startling and charged exploration of desire and narcissism that reads like Carole Maso's AUREOLE with a twist of THE STORY OF O. Sofia works in a gallery in Madrid, the young wife of an architect whose love for her has hardened into a passionate and destructive resentment. Her life is transformed when one afternoon, by chance, she spends her lunch hour at a public pool outside the city. There she meets Marina, a woman who is her doppelganger. They are immediately drawn together - so powerfully that Sofia feels it all may be a trick of her fevered mind - and together they forge a love that is tender as well as passionate, with an intimacy that is almost eerie. When Sofia learns that Marina is leaving for a job in Rome, she sees the perfect exit from a marriage that has become tyranny. And so they go, twin fugitives after desire - but pursued as well by the spectre of danger. YOUR NAME WRITTEN ON WATER is a stunningly accomplished and deeply psychological novel with the charge of an erotic thriller.
