Nectar

By Prior, Lily




Ramona Drottoveo, an albino, is a chambermaid at a lush Italian estate. Distinguished by the intoxicating scent she exudes, Ramona is despised by all women and adored by all men, whose inexhaustible lust she eagerly satisfies. Life changes when her husband dies after discovering his bride with another man on their wedding night. Blamed for his death, Ramona and her lover are exiled to the neighboring city of Naples. There, Ramona's life is transformed once again by the birth of a daughter, Blandina, who "steals" her mother's scent. No longer able to seduce men into blind submission, Ramona humbly returns to the estate to an unexpected welcome -- and revenge. A hilarious and naughty celebration of the senses and the strange places they can lead us, Nectar explores the mystery of sexual attraction and the frivolous nature of divine justice.

" Deep into an Italian landscape of Once Upon A Time, Lilly Prior has conjured - yes, conjured, for Nectar is magic - a novel as enchanting as it is enchanted . Cast out of paradise, Ramona Drottoveo, a hilariously unpleasant and deliciously debauched albino, travels the path paved with sin back to her garden of earthly delights . This is no morality tale . Rather, it is intelligent, sexy, sidesplittingly funny, and like nothing else . Nectar is wonderful." - Binnie Kirshenbaum, author of Hester Among the Ruins . Called a ' technicolor fairytale ' . this romp is ribald and sexual and grotesque and often hilariously funny . Lily pulls no punches . and her characters have the feel of an old-fashioned carnival .

Distinguished by an intoxicating scent she exudes, Ramona is despised by women and worshipped by men whose inexhaustible lust for Ramona she satisfies, eagerly and repeatedly. Ramona's life changes when she marries a sweet beekeeper who dies after discovering his bride with a new lover on their wedding day. The superstitious villagers go on to blame Ramona and her lover when the beekeeper's body disappears and the crops fail, and they exile the couple from the estate to the neighboring city of Naples. There, we follow Ramona through her tragicomic misadventures where her life is transformed once again by the birth of her unwanted daughter, Blandina, who 'steals' Ramona's scent, depriving her mother of her only asset. No longer able to seduce men into blind submission, Ramona returns humbly to the estate to an unexpected welcome - and revenge. : Review: 'A glorious confection of sensuality, mysticism and witty characters…Very entertaining' -- GOOD HOUSEKEEPING: 'Hilarious…Like LA CUCINA, Prior's follow-up bursts with mouthwatering descriptions of sumptuous meals...Bottom Line: Smells like a winner' -- PEOPLE: 'Think of her as Moll Flanders or Tom Jones, or perhaps the anti-Candide...there are surprising twists and turns in this picaresque work' -- WASHINGTON POST : Book Description: A new novel by the author of LA CUCINA set in Italy about a servant girl whose bewitching aroma drives all men who inhale it to the point of madness.

Prior, Lily

Black Swan, 2002. Paperback. Near Fine. Ramona Drottoveo is a haughty, unsightly albino woman whose sole asset is h er intoxicating and magical aroma. She works as a chambermaid at a luxuriou s Italian country estate where men desire her and she readily satiates thei r lust. In an act of defiance, she marries the one man who resisted her, th e quiet beekeeper. But when he catches her with another man on their weddin g day, he kills himself. When the beekeeper's body disappears and strange e vents befall the estate, the townspeople blame Ramona and her lover. Exiled , they end up in Naples, where Ramona continues to use her sexually charged aroma to get what she wants. However, when she conceives and has a child, Ramona's smell vanishes. Without money, a lover, or her spellbinding scent, Ramona humbly returns to the country estate with her daughter in tow to a surprising response and her ultimate fate. Following La Cucina (2000), Prio r once again explores the power of the senses in a lush and bawdy tale of s ex, desire, and the certainty of retribution.
