"Justin loves Sade. And Justine is out of control.Set in a world of inner -city grunge bars and clubs, kinky sex, drug-taking desperation, The River Ophelia, explores the uncharted waters of female desire, where the roles of victim and victimized blur and shift. Both an homage to and subversion of de Sade's Justine and Shakespear's Hamlet, it is an explicit account of sex ual obsession and violence. In the tradition of Bret Easton Ellis and Kathy Acker, Justine Ettler's novel breaks new ground, and will electrify, shock , and provoke." Source: Book Description.
