Nymphomaniac-the complex lives of men. translated by Vbyz Kartel

“He made love to her wherever he felt like it, shrugging away her feeble protests. “But it’s daylight, koke” she’d say.Deep down, however, he knew these carnal excesses were really only a way of avenging for his disgrace. he would never be a doctor of theology and Arab Linguistics surrounded by an admiring group of students, corresponding with his peers in Marakesh, Tunis and Egypt and writing learned commentaries on the hadiths. And yet,  was paradise more delightful than this? Had the gods, meaning to mock him, really given him the best gift of all, in the body of a woman? Segu- Maryse Conde
