Melisande's Lingerie Closet
This novel will appeal to conservatives, people who are interested in celebrity culture, and the type of romance where both the man and woman develop in terms of character over the course of the narrative. Gabriel Aumento has written this fictional tell-all biography of the love of his life, Melisande de Saulnier. She is going to be so mad when she reads it! But it is sitcom funny at times, and at other times resonates like a tragedy. It's part political satire, part romance. See if you can spot all of the political references! Over the course of the novel, Gabriel becomes more compassionate, and Melisande matures. They meet in the centre--until Gabriel betrays her. Will she forgive him?
