In her followup novel to The Bride Stripped Bare, Nikki Gemmell’s With My Body is in the tradition of French writers Colette and Marguerite Duras, a frank and often erotic story of a suburban wife and mother who realises her life is unfulfilling and who decides to take a dangerous step back into the past in order to do something about it. She talks to Sarah Macdonald.
