Happily married, great career, mother of two. What more could a woman possibly want? Enter The Change Room, by award-winning writer Karen Connelly, and find out. Eliza Keenan is the mother of two young sons, the owner of a flower studio that caters to the city's elite, and the loving wife of a deliciously rumpled math professor named Andrew. She's on the move from dawn until her boys are in bed, and after they're asleep she cleans her house. Her one complaint about her life is that the only time she has for herself is her twice-weekly swim in the local community centre pool, where sunlight shines in through a tall window and lights up the water in a way that reminds her of the year she spent as a footloose youth on an island in Greece. Then one morning into this life that is full of satisfactions of all kinds except sexual (because who has the time or the energy once the kids are asleep?) comes a tall, dark and lovely stranger, a young woman Eliza encounters at the pool and nicknames 'the Amazon.' The sight of this woman, naked in the change room, completely undoes Eliza, and soon the two of them are entangled in an affair that breaks all the rules, and threatens to capsize not only Eliza and her happy family, but her lover's world, too. And yet the sex is so all-encompassing, so intimate, so true...how can it be bad? Be ready to be shaken up, woken up, scandalized and deeply stirred. From the Trade Paperback edition.

If you are looking for something spicy to heat up this coolish, wet summer, then award winning Canadian author Karen Connelly may have written the novel for you. The Change Room is a story of love, sex and relationships, both illicit and legitimate. This contemporary novel sizzles with the story of Eliza, a modern wife, mother and business woman who seems to have it all; except a satisfying sex life. Her husband Andrew is just not interested any more. Enter Shar, a beautiful, sensuous woman in her mid-thirties. Shar is happily single, ready to mingle, and attracted to Eliza. The two women exchange mutually admiring glances in the change room after a morning swim, and things start to sizzle between them.

Karen Connelly is a skilled writer, and her prose is both lyrical and poetic, making this book a wonderful read. Be warned however, that the subject matter is of a an explicit, sexual matter, so this may not be for you.
