Erotic Lit

Publishers Lunch reports on an interesting new deal about for a book in translation, an all-too rare occurence here in the States.

French bestseller L’AMANDE (The Almond) by Nedjma, called the first erotic work written by a Muslim woman, to Morgan Entrekin at Grove/Atlantic (US) and Patrick Janson-Smith and Michele Hutchison at Transworld UK, in nice deals, by Heidi Warneke at Plon.

Ahem. If you actually believe that in 1,400 years there hasn’t been an erotic book by a Muslim woman…maybe you should buy this one.
