Summary
From the author of the international bestseller 'Wetlands', a raw and taboo-breaking novel of sex, death, and marriage. 'It's easier to give a blow job than to make coffee.' That's what Elizabeth Kiehl, devoted mother of a seven-year-old, thinks to herself after a particularly inventive bout of sex with her husband Georg. She goes to great efforts to pleasure her husband in the bedroom and beyond, doing whatever it takes to make him happy. Elizabeth is also an extremely thoughtful and committed mother to her daughter, compartmentalizing her life for the sake of the family unit. But her perfect mother and wife act hides a painful past and a tragic rift in her psyche - the result of a terrible car crash in which her brothers and mother were involved. Extraordinarily candid, Charlotte Roche returns with a provocative, semi-autobiographical novel that explores what is expected of a twenty-first-century wife and mother. Her story will provoke and involve you to the very last page

Summary
Elizabeth Kiehl appears to be the perfect wife and mother, attentive to her husband, Georg's, sexual needs as well as the needs of her seven-year-old daughter Liza. But her perfect-wife-and-mother act hides a devastating rift in her psyche, a trauma involving her own mother and three brothers. As Georg encourages Elizabeth to be ever more sexually adventurous, she is forced to face her fears and her own sexuality.
