Summary A "hauntingly disarming" novel of a troubled woman obsessed with being the perfect wife and lover by the international bestselling author of Wetlands ( Bust ). Charlotte Roche's scandalous first novel, Wetlands , was an international phenomenon -- a sexually and hygienically explicit tale of a young woman's life that sold over two million copies. Her second novel, Wrecked , is just as raw and powerful as it deals not only with sex, but also with death, fidelity, feminism, and the question of what is expected from a twenty-first-century wife and mother. " It's easier to give a blow job than to make coffee ." That's what Elizabeth Kiehl thinks to herself after a lengthy and inventive bout of sex with her husband Georg. Elizabeth goes to great efforts to pleasure her husband and to be a good mother to their seven-year-old daughter. But her domestic perfectionism hides a tragic rift in her psyche -- the result of a terrible accident she keeps locked away in her past. As a result, Elizabeth's relationship with Georg is rather unusual: most married couples wouldn't frequent the local brothel for threesomes while their daughter is at school. "Wrecked is likely to become a cult classic, American Psycho by way of Catherine Millet, as Roche places domestic sex at the forefront of contemporary erotic culture." -- Financial Times.
