Jan Carr and the original painting by Henri Matisse "Seated Odalisque, Left Knee Bent." Wow! Matisse did my cover art!

Harem Wish


by JAN CARR

Jan Carr beside the display window of (then) Borders in Greenwich Village, featuring her book Harem Wish.
This novel for adults garnered a Starred Review in Publishers Weekly.

"Carr follows more than 20 children's and YA books with an erotic, poignant and slyly satirical adult debut...the superabundance of material never overwhelms the story. Quick cuts from one scene to the next keep the pages moving briskly and inevitably towards a moving, hopeful conclusion. Carr is capable of great tenderness, and her playful, pun-filled voice is a delight." -- Publishers Weekly
