★★★★ "[a] charming comedy" -The Guardian.
Nancy Stokes, a retired school teacher and widow, is yearning for some
adventure, some human connection, and some sex. Good sex.
Whilst her husband Robert provided a home, a family, something
resembling a life, good sex was never on offer. But he’s gone now, and
Nancy has a plan: she will find adventure with a sex worker named Leo
Grande. In an anonymous hotel room Nancy greets Leo. He looks every bit
as good as his picture, but what Nancy wasn’t expecting was conversation
as well as fornication. Leo has a view on everything, and though he may
not always tell the truth, Nancy finds she likes him. And he likes her.
With growing sexual confidence, Nancy starts to relax. Over the course
of their rendezvous, the power dynamics shift and their well-worn masks
begin to slip.
