Description

Lyrical prose, sticky Mediterranean heat and vivid descriptions make this coming-of-age story transporting, sensual and completely addictive. Huvudkaraktären är tyvärr rätt tråkig, smal och snygg med stora bröst (påpekas ofta) alla killar vill ha henne, men hon har skilda föräldrar och en ätstörning och det gör att hon inte kan va ihop med den här killen som är jättekär i henne och vill att hon ska bo i Barcelona med honom. Her equally nameless lover is an academic who, soon after meeting her, is offered a position in Barcelona. Succulent and Sensual, Jessica Andrews is back once again depicting another turbulent and transitory life of a young 20-something woman. In the shimmering Mediterranean heat, she is faced with both pleasure and shame, and must find out if she is able to change.

We meet her late into this process, as she grapples with it during the development of a new relationship. the key themes were body image and diet culture, sexuality, identity and coming to terms with who you are and what you want. Not to entirely bash the book, in its late Lana Del Rey tendresse, I think the themes of language, voice, and how trapped they are in the body are compelling. Partly I think it’s to do with the subject matter -more the romantic relationship entanglements, which became a tad repetitive in nature (also I’m not a huge romance fan) and perhaps also to do with the narrator herself. This is for those with teen angst, those in first-love relationships, those surfing along the honeymoon waves, and everyone stuck in suburban sensationalism thinking they know and feel everything after watching a single Youtube video essay on internet culture.I remember speaking to Jessica Andrews on a patchy phone connection from my living room in London one cold, dark January night in 2020.

I think what I mean is, there were certain passages that felt slight too navel gazing and, dare I say it, overly written? written from a first-person perspective, andrews' use of the direct address, "you," symbolises a new leap in her work, as not only are we looking inward on the protagonist and her internal monologue, but we are also observing the people around her as the relationship progresses. The plot is non-chronological, flipping between our unnamed protagonist's present and past relationships as she attempts to come to terms with her life expectations, wants and regrets, predominantly that she's not living up to her potential.I'm writing in my journal, wondering who collects the oranges when they fall from the trees and what happens to them afterwards.
