In the tradition of erotic confession (with a catch), Smith's pornographic novel explores female desire. The unnamed narrator #150; gorgeous, sophisticated, bored, underemployed #150; embarks on a series of intense urban encounters in an unnamed city. Her desire is limitless: passionate, playful, intense, humorous. Diana is a literary experiment to arouse and to paint a sexual portrait of a city.

Read the intro, not sure what all the fuss was about that this was written by a man, when a woman was telling the story. It was well written and as a woman, I didn't think twice about it. Confused on the last page as Patrice is waiting in the cab for Diana and asking her to join him, she says "No. Goodbye." But then she is running into the cab with him, so not sure why she is saying goodbye to Patrice when she goes with him anyway. Also a typo on the page further up says the cab driver glances back at Jones - it's Patrice in the cab, not Jones.

A good easy read. Short and sweet.
