The Men's Room by Ann Oakley
Charity Walton seem to have everything she could want: A husband, four children, a lovely house in London, and a successful career as a sociologist. Then she meets Mark Carlyle, American, suntanned, incoming Head of the Sociology Department. Having devoted herself for years to her husband and children suddenly she knows what she wants now and surrenders herself to his charismatic pull. Their sex is frequent, passionate, sometimes violent. Their love consuming yet volatile. And soon Charity, having abandoned all she has known realises that love is often far from true .A superb, frank novel of sexual politics, THE MEN'S ROOM is also a unique novel about love.
