Don't panic! Sex is back in Amanda's good books
The world of letters will be inconsolable with the news this morning that Amanda Brunker has shelved her fourth novel Hello Buoys.
Amanda was a quarter way through writing a novel without its usual racy recipe of athletic rumpy pumpy when she decided to revert to type and "start another bonkbuster".
That's OK then. Order has been restored to Ireland. The last thing we needed in these dark, dreary days was La Brunker to stop writing about sex.
She told me her literary coitus interruptus was inspired by a "hope to mature as a writer -- I had originally decided to leave the sex out of my new novel. But it seems that the housewives of the world are now demanding hardcore porn in their reading material. So I'm not going to fight the trend."
Rest assured, Brunker's new novel will include her trademark erotica.
Possibly for purposes of research, she and her husband Philip (Bono gave her away at their New York nuptials three years ago) are heading to the Blue Haven in Kinsale next week for a bit of r'n'r. Randy and rampant, I presume.
"My husband was, of course, thrilled for me to keep my sexy thoughts behind closed doors," Amanda told me, "but he will no doubt start getting nervous again that I will feel the need to divulge our bedroom antics to the world ... " Meanwhile, the rest of us can't wait.
