Mary Joseph

(Penguin Petit)

Select Preferred Format

‘First she took off her gold necklace, kissed the cross and laid it reverently on the table. Then she took off her sari, folded it and put it on a chair. She took off her blouse; her breasts tumbled out.’

When Mohan’s wife returns from giving birth to their first child, she wants to have nothing to do with Mohan. Starved for sex for six months, Mohan’s morals become less important than his needs. And what he needs is to feel wanted, as a man; a willing woman to find pleasure with. Mary Joseph is his baby’s Roman Catholic Tamilian wet nurse—a happy, full-bodied woman who has one motto—‘Only one life to live, Saar’. Will Mohan find what he’s looking for in Mary’s ample affections? And what will Mary do to keep her Saar happy, and keep him wanting more?

Khushwant Singh writes a deliciously torrid affair of two people who delight in the desires of the flesh in this sexy story.
