The Sextine Chapel
The Sextine Chapel
Hervé Le Tellier

Translated by Ian Monk

An interconnected series of playful stories on the expected and unexpected pleasures of sexual intimacy

The delightful and daring English-language debut of French author Hervé le Tellier is a series of short, intimately interconnected stories making up a lively user's manual to pleasure, relating the various liaisons of couples from Anna and Ben to Yolande and Zach (taking in Chloe and Xavier along the way, as well as twenty others, as you may have guessed), until the criss-crossing of their lives and partners makes up a pattern as intricate as the fresco on the ceiling of a chapel . . .

Harkening back to another playful book on an intimate subject—Harry Mathews's Singular Pleasures—Hervé le Tellier’s The Sextine Chapel celebrates the wonderful, often random, often excruciating possibilities of sexual intimacy, with something here for just about everyone—and their wife, husband, lover, or passing fancy.
