In his introduction to these two novellas, John Banville describes the influential American author, Robert Coover, as 'a master of elegant nuance, subtle intent and darkly subversive humour'. The sado-masochism of Spanking the Maid is a metaphor for the process of literary creation; while Briar Rose is a re-casting of the legend of Sleeping Beauty in which Coover explores the nature of romantic love.
