May We Borrow Your Husband? : And Other Comedies of the Sexual Life, Paperback

May We Borrow Your Husband? : And Other Comedies of the Sexual Life Paperback


Author William Harris is spending the fag-end of the season at Antibes finishing his first attempt at historical biography, but he becomes more and more interested and involved in the antics of two homosexual interior decorators intent on stealing Poopy Travis' honeymoon husband.

Which leaves him free to fall in love with Poopy himself.

A widow and a divorcee tipsily discuss the inadequacy of men, deciding that women have much more to offer each other by way of variety in sexual love.

A wife holidays alone in Jamaica's cheap season idly hoping for excitement but finding the only man she can have an affair with is far too old and frightened of the dark.

Affairs, obsessions, grand passions and tiny ardours this collection contains some of Greene's saddest observations on the hilarity of sex.
