      msarki.tumblr/post/7776070It is said that the future narrows once we cease to believe it is eternal…___Catherine MilletI am over fifty pages into my new read by Catherine Millet titled Jealousy and I have to say that this memoir is far more cerebral than The Sexual Life of Catherine M There is plenty of hard core sexual intelligence on the pages of her first graphic memoir, but this particular book hasn’t even offered a hint of decadent indulgences as yet. In her opening she is obviously lea [...]

      Good lord is this book pretentious. File this one under French sluts who think they're Plato.The nonchalant sexual libertinism that marked Millet's attitude in her previous book, The Sexual Life of Catherine M has given way to jealousy in this sequel memoir, in the wake of her discovery of the side amours of her lover, Jacques, with whom she is having a relatively monogamous relationship. She realizes her reactions are hypocritical and complex, and her attempts to sort through and hash out these [...]

      I read The Sexual Life of Catherine M. in 2009, in which Millet candidly recounts her libertine lifestyle. The titillating subject material was only part of the appeal; her unapologetic candor was what really struck me. Shortly after finishing that memoir, I learned that Millet was set to release a companion volume, Jealousy. I became instantly intrigued. This was, after all, a woman who wrote in explicit detail of her years in the swinger lifestyle, in which sexual partners are ephemeral. What [...]

      So, it’s Mother’s Day here and I just don’t understand any of it. Like this….A friend warned me yesterday that it was going to be Mother’s Day today and had I forgotten? Well, not so much forgotten as not noticed, but I’m not a mother, Stephen, so? There are advantages, you see, to not being one. But you have one, he replied. That’s easy. My mother would kill me if I so much as mentioned such a piece of marketing crap designed to make mothers feel even worse than they did before.Li [...]

      Points granted for Millet's candor: jealousy, being on the nastier side of the emotional spectrum, is not something most people want to admit to or analyze in regards to their own situation.Points deducted for attitude: holy hell, this woman is pretentious! Look, lady, you're giving in depth descriptions of how you crawled around on the floor, sniveling and searching your significant other's private stuff in order to find more proof with which to enlarge your wounds. You freely admit that this p [...]

      An intense if not slightly introverted read, some parts of which I had to re-read. However the point was not lost on me and I'm really glad I went on this journey with Ms Millet. Fortunately for the reader she has a habit of relaying her thoughts and then reiterating them in simpler manner which reinforces her initial point. God I'm beginning to sound like her LOL. Not a sexual (in fact not sexual at all) book, it's a reflection of the other side of her life. I (wrongly) assummed that the events [...]

    7. Lee Kofman on said:

      This memoir is quite tedious and self unaware. Unfortunately the book only supports the irritating commonplace that women with voracious sexual appetites suffer from psychological problems. Also, Millet's art critique’s tendency for abstraction makes the writing truly irritating and unreadable even for the intellectual wannabe as myself.

    8. S'hi on said:

      Already within the first few pages I resonate with images and feelings of being drawn in magnetically to something of which I long seem to have been aware yet not yet known. The familiarity of words as veils rather than meanings clothes the language she uses, despite translation from French, so that I feel exposed to thoughts and actions I have long attempted to voice for myself. Part of me wants to put the book down before it alters my own perceptions and capabilities beyond the purity I still [...]

    9. Miranda on said:

      Millet's writing about encountering the infidelity of her long-term partner, Jacques Henri, reminded me of Simone de Beauvoir's novella The Woman Destroyed. Both are conceptual, speculative accounts of the annihilating self-abnegation that is sometimes the result of jealousy. As in The Sexual Life of Cathering M Millet's writing is painfully revealing and while I marvel at her ability to make herself so vulnerable, I have to admit it's not easy to like her by the end of the book. Jealousy debase [...]

      Terwijl Catherine er meerdere mannen op na houdt is ze ziekelijk jaloers op de minnaressen van haar vriend. Een zoektocht naar de ondoorgrondelijke zieleroerselen van een moeilijk mensongelofelijk saai, niet te doorgronden boek. Het enige wat interessant aan het boek is dat nu toch duidelijk is dat deze nymphomaan ziek in d'r hoofd is.

      I got this author's name from The Little Paris Bookshop, by Nina George from Ms. George's list of books to read. Catherine Millet's The Sexual Life of Catherine M. was recommended reading. Since that was not yet available, I checked out this sequel. Here we go again. I read a few pages and wasn't interested. I have the first one now. We'll see how it goes.

    12. Rebecca on said:

      better than the sexual life, her first book. at least i thought soi guess i got tired of reading about all her conquests and this had more depth and weight to it. maybe i'm just equating melancholy and substance, though.

    13. Lucie Novak on said:

      A good book. Explaining that jealousy is not only sexual. If you redad my book, you would understand why this book is close to me. I liked this, and because I like the author, I was sorry to read about her turmoil.

    14. Petr on said:

      Interesting book with a lot of erotic tension. Reads like a minor psychological thriller: "How will it end? Will they stay together? Will she find her balance again?"
