The Bride Stripped Bare is a novel written by the Australian writer Nikki Gemmell, originally published anonymously. The title is borrowed from the painting.
Cole forced you to look, right at the start, he taught you to get close. He likes to direct your life, to guide it. C ole fell asleep inside you once. He laughs at the memory, finds it erotic and silly and comforting. I could never do that to anyone else.
Think yourself honored, Lovely. It glows like a candle rather than glitters. You love him even when he falls asleep in the process of making love to you. That was the time of greedy love, full of exhilaration and terror, and when you said I love you you always felt stripped; there was no sense, ever, of love as a rescue. Sometimes, now, you wonder what happened to the intensity of your youth, when everything seemed so vivid and desperate and bright.
But Cole. When he enfolds you in his arm you feel his love running as quiet and strong and deep as an underground river right through you. He stills your agitation in the way a visit to Choral Evensong does, or a long swim after work. The bond between you seems so clear-headed: Like Theo. Your dear, restless, vivid-hearted friend. Sometimes you feel a sharp envy at the sensuality of her. This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue? Upload Sign In Join.

Angus and Robertson Top , Book This book was not what I was anticipating when I started to read it. I was suprised by the implication that the author was trying to imply that no one is happy in their marriage, and that the only way to remain a "good wife" is to be having a secret affair. I also was not a fan of some of the implications that to also be a good wife she had to submit to any sexual desire of her husband's, regardless of how she felt about it.
I can't quite figure out why this book made such huge waves when it was released, but maybe I'm not the target audience, as I am actually happy in my relationship.
Other than that, the writing was easy to read, and the story flowed fairly easily. Ever since the runaway success of 50 Shades of Grey, the re discovery of erotica has been foremost in the book world.
People ask me all the time if I've read that book and what I might have thought of it. And they seem surprised that someone who reads incessantly wouldn't have read it. But when I try to explain that I have in fact read erotica before and long prior to this new trend , then the consensus is that I would want to read something far more literary as if there is no such thing as literary erotica, no author like Anais Nin.
Of course, there is, and there are authors like Nikki Gemmell, whose ten year old novel The Bride Stripped Bare is another example of literary erotica, a sexually charged book with a purposeful concept behind its erotic explorations.
The Bride Stripped Bare Set: The Bride Stripped Bare / With My Body
But perhaps my past experiences should have prepared me for the fact that even literary erotica misses the mark for me. Opening with a note from the main character's mother offering the enclosed diary or set of lessons as a book to be published anonymously in the wake of the eponymous bride's unexplained disappearance, the note itself sets up the purpose of the narrative: As such, this purports to be an exploration of the secret interior life of all women, to show what women want from men, to examine their unstated sexual desires, and to serve as an awakening for all wives but also for all husbands.
Told in short vignette-like chapters illustrating purported life lessons, the main character remains anonymous and addresses the reader in the second person as she tells her own story.
In short, the bride of the title has recently married and on her delayed honeymoon with her new husband, Cole, discovers that he and her best friend Theo have some sort of relationship to which she has never been privy. She's convinced he's having an affair despite his fierce denials and a slow freeze sets into their marriage.
But this freeze is simply the culmination of a long standing situation as it turns out that lust, consideration, and communication have been leaking out of their relationship since long before their mostly platonic marriage took place.
