    Manuel Teixiera Gomes wrote these shorts stories in 1934 whilst living in Bougie North Africa He was an ambassador to Britain in the early 1910s and was later Portuguese President in 1923 for 2 years The book contains 6 short stories which though called `erotic' I think it would be fairer to say being no surprise to me were `first love' stories the raunchiest it gets is French kissing they are certainly not erotic in any Anais Nin or Pierre Louys way They come across as literary vignettes of the authors past youth imaginings which I'd characterise as `if only I could meet a girlunder these circumstances' 1 Deus ex Machina Boy meets 17 year old girl in Amsterdam who's a money trap 2 The Gypsy Boy meets seductive gypsy at a fair who strangely impacts on his girlfriend 3 Margareta Boy meets girl in Italian cathedral and then again on a ship 4 Cordelia Business man meets girl on steamship from Catalonia 5 uestion Mark Man meets girl from a boat from Constantinople 6 Dead Woman's Grove Married landowner hires killer just to get off with his girlfriend From my somewhat brutal descriptions you may imagine the stories are boring but they are not; they are engaging subtle and well written The problem is that somehow they're not passionate or exciting I always have a problem with a book of short stories being too samey as a collection which may be a fair accusation here they are all in the first person which merges one's impression of the lead character too uickly; the endings have no real alternatives except one being the last one The locations and history need to be precise and detailed to set the scene and I felt this was done too sparsely in most of the tales it is no surprise that the best two stories are the longest 1 6 Dead Woman's grove is undoubtedly the best because it actually tells a story with a genuine thrill of discovery and `what will happen next' feel The ending has passion Overall a uick read short stories well delivered with style and authority just a little too flat overall

Erotic Stories[KINDLE] ❂ Erotic Stories ❅ Manuel Teixeira-Gomes – Capitalsoftworks.co.uk Written when the author was in his seventies these erotic stories are reminiscences of a lost youth Through the use of two narrators one representing youth and the other age Teixeira Gomes commingles Written when the author was in his seventies these Erotic Stories are reminiscences of a lost youth Through the use of two narrators one representing youth and the other age Teixeira Gomes commingles nostalgia and cynicism in his descriptions of the past This dichotomy is further enhanced by the sardonic gaze of the author which scrutinizes the self obsessed male protagonist It is Teizeira Gomes's unflinching irony which allows him to offer realistic portrayals of a hypocritical society whilst at the same time uestioning and ridiculing it.
