Home » Nine Island

Nine Island is an intimate autobiographical novel, told by J. After decades of disaster with men, she is trying to decide whether to withdraw forever from romantic love, and begins translating Ovid’s magical stories about the transformations caused by Eros. When not ruminating over her sexual past and current fantasies, J observes the comic, sometimes steamy goings-on among her faded-glamour condo neighbors. Set against the backdrop of exquisitely beautiful flora, fauna, and seascapes, Nine Island culminates with a breathtaking gift, from one friend to another.
