Paris Demands by Mark Miksche
Roger, a young man, finds himself more-than-a-tourist but less than a Parisian in the City of Lights. Escaping a relationship with a friend that was never as platonic as his own parents believed, Roger discovers the nights and men of Paris to be affairs complicated by drugs, ex-patriots, and trysts. His awkward relationship with Marcel, a laconic native as addicting as the coke he sells, threatens to smother Roger. Life could be a trap of simply rolling out of bed, seeing a face as tangled as the linens, wiping the blow from your upper lip, readying yourself for another night in the bars and clubs of Paris. Does a city that prides itself on fostering love ever truly inspire it?
This is the boldest of this week’s books – at times raunchy and very naughty, it is the story of a young man who seeks to live life to the fullest in Paris. Of course, to him, such a life involves a great deal of sex, drugs, and partying. Yet this is not a trashy novel. Miksche’s hero is really seeking love but, as the book opens, is too immature what that entails. Mark sent me the manuscript hoping to spark my interest and was rewarded with a contract.
We have two copies of Paris Demands to give away. You may choose print or digital editions.
