Praise

“Fascinating. . . . [E]xposes what can happen when the tables are turned in an ego-driven marriage, and a husband plays a secondary role next to a successful wife. Admirable command of language, as well as perceptive understanding of human character, sets this author’s work apart from run-of-the-mill erotic fiction. Strong description, creating a complete sensory experience, brings to vivid life each intimate encounter. The aftereffects, which linger long after the sex is over, permeate the scenes that follow.” Foreword Reviews

“Plebanek’s crisp and intelligent new novel is full of pitch-perfect descriptions, mostly but not exclusively about sex, and its contemplation. . . . A merciless comedy of modern manners, and the politics of desire.” —  Publishers Weekly

“Grażyna Plebanek’s tantalising Illegal Liaisons breaks down barriers with its thrilling descriptions of sex and acute observations of life in Brussels where the author resides. A father, husband and a writer caught in a relationship with two women. Need I say more?” —  Litro Magazine

“A remarkable achievement. This riveting novel not only shows that intimate liaisons can feel every bit as ‘illegal’ as they do dangerous, but it also offers (sometimes literally) penetrating insights into the confluence of the personal and the political–here, at the heart of a twenty-first-century Europe where conceptions of gender roles and morality clash, comingle, and are redefined. A must for anyone with a mind for the erotic who also values their mind.” — Catherine Millet, author of The Sexual Life of Catherine M
