A sexual and spiritual autobiography. Taking the Garden of Eden story as a metaphor for consciousness, this book narrates the development of the progragonist’s awareness of her sexuality and spirituality. A Catholic girl who left the church, she made love with a devout Muslim boy who tried to convert her even in bed, became a little wild but never gave up pondering on the meaning of love and life. Her contemplation took her to return to the ideal garden—the garden of her childhood and the Garden of Paradise—as the nostalgia of a unity no longer exist. “The Confession” is the climax of the trilogy that started ten years earlier without a plan to be a trilogy. This book will soon be available in English.1
