Pleasure: An Almanac for the Heart

A celebration of women, friendship and all things fabulous in life…

Bold and intimate and full of heart, Nikki Gemmell’s latest book is an ideal gift for your best friend, aunt, sister or fairy godmother.

The Bride Stripped Bare exposed female desire as no other book had: it was raw, intoxicating and breathtakingly libidinous. This non-fiction follow-up has more secret women’s business – dealing with everything from Brazilian waxes to ‘secret’ underwear, coping with broken hearts to what makes a perfect partner (a checklist to cut out and keep), advice on the friends who flatten you (frenemies) to the importance of empathy, workplace challenges to domestic bliss, birth to death – and all that lies between.

Pleasure is a book Nikki Gemmell says she looked for as a present for a cherished friend – and never found – so she decided to write it herself.

It’s encased in a stunning design package with gorgeous illustrations from the Spanish illustrator Paula Sanz Caballero, and is an ideal gift for any woman in your life who’s loved.

“…I like not only to be loved, but also to be told that I am loved. I am not sure that you are of the same kind. But the realm of silence is large enough beyond the grave. This is the world of light and speech, and I shall take leave to tell you that you are very dear…”

George Eliot, letter to a friend
