Review: Sex and Death in the American Novel by Sarah Martinez

Sex and Death in the American NovelSex and Death in the American Novel by Sarah Martinez
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Where did the story take place? Mainly on the west coast, Seattle area.

How did the main character feel during the book? Vivianna felt unloved by her father and felt her mother did not understand her. She felt her family did not understand her choice in writing genre.

What did the title have to do with the book? The subject of sex was discussed often during talks on literature. Death was discussed when dealing with her father. Since he was not alive, Vivianna fell back on this. She used his death as a crutch in not dealing with her feelings for her father.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
