Twisted year (The)

The Twisted Year front cover. On a black background, the body of a woman and three women's heads, floating in the space over a texture of purple are displayed. The full-bodied woman is a blonde who sits up, torso lifted and legs across a bed covered with a purple blanket. Her right leg is bent under the left one, which also bends slightly. Her body faces the reader, head towards the left of the image. She is supported on her right, extended arm to the side. Her other hand rests on the bed, in front of her. She is wearing a white, full-body slip and shoes that have crossed straps at the top of the foot. Her head is bowed, and her eyes look down, slightly towards her left. Above her on the left, three monochromatic, floating heads are seen in a vertical sequence. Two brunettes at top and bottom, and a blonde in the center., with a cigarette hanging from her lips. The brunette at the top looks straight at the reader. The blonde has short hair, and her head is slightly turned to her left, with a cigarette hanging from her lips. The brunette at the bottom has hair to her nape and looks straight on to the blonde on the bed. Hard light comes from the front left, illuminating mostly the blonde on the bed.

She turned her back on normal love to make a tormented search for fulfillment . . .

Cover, Back Text

What was this woman?
Karen called herself an actress, but she worked - when she worked at all, as a waitress.
Between jobs, she drifted.
All that was a shell.
Beneath her lovely sophisticated surface, Karen was something entirely different - and not entirely woman.
Desperately she went from one warped affair to another, choosing female companion after female companion, and finding true fulfillment nowhere
You have never read a novel quite like the Twisted Year. It offers new insight into a major problem of our society.
