Retro-Sexual

The Thrill of the Chaste
by Dawn Eden
W Publishing Group
(224 pages, $13.99, paperback)

reviewed by Mike Aquilina

The Thrill of the Chaste is a chick book. The author is clearly addressing female readers woman-to-woman. So why am I putting my masculinity on the line by admitting that I read it? Because I, like Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof, have five daughters.
