In the Diary of a Contemporary Woman by erotic fiction writer Lucy Pussett, the protagonist, Angelique Santoro, is single for the first time in fifteen years. She just turned 34 and feels deeply unhappy within the constraints of traditional, straight relationships. Back as a teenager she already broke free by kissing a girl and unleash herself in physically becoming one flesh with a female classmate. Currently, she lives in an apartment with a gay roommate and tries to separate her professional life from her escapades and dysfunctional family life that came as roller-coaster experiences the last week. From steamy sexual encounters to leading a jiujitsu protegée to the championship, coping with her dad’s confession to having a long-time extramarital affair, and younger sister Aveline to threatening situations that urge for a red line not to pass.
Rather than offering just the erotic scenes, Lucy Pussett, integrates these into well-thought character development and a reliable narrative. Female empowerment, sisterly love and hate, the steadfast love for her father, and the attempts to keep addictions off the radar mark Lucy and her family and partners.
