About this title


girls is a journey into the most forbidden corners of male desire and a brilliantly provocative novel about lust obsession and power. A wealthy father of two deserts his family in order to spend the night in a college girl's dorm room. A CEO visiting his friends villa feigns a sprained ankle in order to have sex with their teenage daughter. A businessman in Korea has the best sexual experience of his life with a young woman whose true age he never learns. These are the men who have left their safe lives, who have replaced their old dreams with dreams of the girls they yearn for. In an age when everything is for sale, girls' subject matter is the power and fascination young girls have over rich men and vice versa. Juxtaposing philosophical asides and travelling deep inside the most forbidden corners of male desire, Nic Kelman's insights are both revealing and shocking.
