Top 10 Sexy Books

Edmund White's "Caracole,"  the erotic adventure of a shy country boy who comes to a city of seduction and debauchery.

Caracole
By Edmund White

Edmund White's lyrical novel is infused with an erotic spirit on every page. The protagonist, Gabriel, is a young man growing up in a dilapidated manor where he is initiated into the pleasures of sex by an animalistic tribal girl. Gabriel's journey continues to the Paris-like fictional capital — a world of foppish dandies, passionate mistresses, aging beaus lusting for fresh flesh and other debauched creatures. This erotic adventure is a feast for literary minds and lovers of old, decadent milieus populated with capricious, superficial pleasure seekers.
