Nira/Sussa, the transgressive literary novel that everyone either seems to love or hate with vitriolic passion. And that was awarded a Ph.D., despite being condemned as pornographic.
It should be available for purchase by the end of the month.
I've been working on this novel, as far as I can tell, since fall of 1999. Editing a page of it -- which I've done, over and over, with every page -- is usually harder for me than writing a new page. This has been grueling, soul-wrenching process, beyond anything I could hope to describe.
I hope you like it. But I really, really hope you talk about it. Everywhere. Because the novel is a challenging story with vital things to say. I passionately believe this is an important, even historic novel -- or I wouldn't have thrown such a vast portion of my life into it.
