It s as though you had to know the password for our relationship . . . What is love? Why do some people make our hearts flutter, while others leave us cold? A seductive blend of Maggie Nelson and Marguerite Duras, Trysting seizes romance s slippery truths by letting us glimpse nearly 300 beguiling relationships: scenes between all genders and sexualities, including first dates, infidelities, dependencies, missed connections, bitter memories, and first passions. Proving that the erotic knows no bounds, almost anything can be a means of attraction: from amnesia and throat-clearing to sign language, earplugs, back hair, arthritis, PVC, and showers. Combining aphorisms, anecdotes, and adventures, Trysting is a tour de force that gives a new perspective on a question as old as humanity. "

Newspapers & Magazines
'Trysting reveals what only literature can: the basic irrationality, the arbitrary enchantment, but also the residual grace within the feeling of love. A multitude of anonymous male and female characters show us in what ways we are seduced by each other: a scent, a movement, a way of being, a way of making love.' Alexandre Gefen, Magazine litteraire ---------- 'Though she insists on brevity, Pagano never abandons complexity and holds fast to the animal sensuality that forms the bedrock of every couple's relationship.' Clementine Goldszal, Les Inrockuptibles ---------- 'It's familiar but never banal. Having nothing of the a performance, and everything of a sharing of confidences, it is all of an incredible delicacy.' Olivia de Lamberterie, Elle
