Monique Roffey Interview – The Tryst

An interview with Monique Roffey, the Trinidadian and British author of The Tryst, which has been described by Rowan Pelling as ‘a sly, feral, witty, offbeat erotic novella that unsettles the reader, even as it arouses.’ Roffey discusses the genesis of the novel, different attitudes to sex, and also recommends some steamy reads.
