A read which will take you into the hidden world of suburban swinging parties where nothing is forbidden. Although this book is almost entirely about sex and includes a lot of graphic description it is not remotely titillating. Instead, it's a serious study of obsession - Morrison treats his damaged characters with compassion and understanding.
' "Swinging". It's like four couples swap partners. Not like "Wife Swap" - the American family version, which is basically just mommy swap. I mean really swap. Like you get these four houses together, and there's surveillance in every room and every week the couples have to swap partners, and I mean like, totally, sleeping with each other and everything. It's like 'Big Brother' meets key parties meets I dunno, the 60s.'
