it was ok
Read in January, 2009

Despite its promising title, Lust is fairly dry and brittle. The characters are fragile, the eros bloodless, and the sensibility of rich Easterners comes across as dull and vapid. This is intentional, and Minot's prose works like a scalpel in cutting these characters, but I prefer richer works where emotions and sex spill from the page.
