Not One Day

Not One Day
Winner of the 2018 Albertine Prize Finalist for the 2018 Lamba Literary Awards Finalist for the 2018 French American Foundation Translation Prize Available in a new edition, Anne Garréta's sensual portrayal of trysts past.

Not One Day begins with a maxim: "Not one day without a woman." What follows is an intimate, erotic, and sometimes bitter recounting of loves and lovers past, breathtakingly written, exploring the interplay between memory, fantasy, and desire. Organized alphabetically, Not One Day remembers the evanescent thrill of each encounter, dismissing the ultimatum of truth in favor of an enigmatic assemblage.

"For life is too short to submit to reading poorly written books and sleeping with women one does not love."
