About the book

One very hot Italian summer, a young woman sits alone in her bedroom and writes in her diary: 'I want love. I want to feel my heart melt. I want to sink into a river of passion.' As the summer unfolds, she follows her desires wherever they lead her, often into the arms of men who set her world on fire. She is thrilled to discover the sexual power she wields. And yet, will any of these passionate encounters lead to the love she longs for?

About the author

When she was 16 years old, Melissa P. began writing a diary recording her secret desires. That diary eventually became this novel, her debut. A worldwide sensation, it has been translated into 25 languages and adapted into a feature film. Melissa P.'s second novel, The Scent of Your Breath, is also available from Serpent's Tail.
