Quiver is twelve interlinked short stories that explore lust and human sexuality in all their sensual manifestations. In her first collection of erotic writing, Tobsha Learner transports us into a world of love, power and obsession, often blurring the line between reality and fantasy, bringing us face-to-face with delicately observed passion and pain.
Experience the angry fearlessness of youth, the pleasure of the new, sexual friction at its most primal, and the lingering fingers of a past that refuses to let go.
Witty and provocative, Quiver explores desire in all its complexity.

A woman bent on revenge, a man craving extremes and the self-doubts of middle age are all part of this diverse collection, already a bestseller in Australia. Although Learner, a screenwriter (HBO's The Unmasking of O), writes most often from the point of view of a straight woman, she occasionally adopts male and bisexual points of view, and she's best when she features a voyeuristic element. In the opening story, "The Woman Who Was Tied Up and Forgotten," a married couple rekindle their passion with the joys of bondage, but even that innovation soon needs added spice. The clich? that people in power really want domination is turned on its head in a surprising climax. Another tale, "Looking for Strange," describes the allure of a single character from the perspectives of two lovers, which converge in the heated encounter of an adventurous threesome. Perhaps the most imaginative story, "The Short Man in Crime," features a six-foot-five-inch woman who learns the beauty of her form from a five-foot-one-inch man. Some portraits are stronger than others, but each erotic narrative pushes the reader toward the next with great expectation, and the final story, "The Promiscuity of Bats," joins all of the characters in a stalled elevator on Christmas Eve. One man puts a drug, ecstasy, in the champagne he's carrying and the ensuing orgy brings everyone back out for a curtain call. It's no mystery why this explicit debut has found an enthusiastic audience Down Under.
