Beth has been working as a server in the kitchen, assisting the clients while also practicing meditation to calm her demons. Like the clients who pay to be there, the servers must observe the rules, and silence and separation of the sexes are chief among them. But Beth is at a crossroads in her life. She came here torn between two lovers, estranged from her parents, and overwhelmed with guilt at possibly having caused a man s death. Conflicted and wandering, she finds a forbidden diary in the men s dorm and cannot keep away from itor the man who wrote it. At the same time, desiring to achieve the inner peace that Buddhist practice promises, she yearns to follow the example set by the slim, silent, white-clad teacher Mi Nuand may be yearning for something more. Funny and poignant, swiftly paced and completely engaging, "Sex Is Forbidden" is an entertaining novel about two profoundly different attitudes to life, and Beth is a character to be savored."
