Sexing The Cherry

"A truly modern style novel that is not for traditionalists. The literary techniques are as exciting as the complex character relationships. My only complaint is she spelt 'bisexuality' as 'lesbianism'"
The World's Wife
The World's Wife

"The plot's crap but her prose is divine."
The Book Of Shadows
The Book Of Shadows

White Oleander
