These four friends haunt the cafes of inner-city Sydney, eyeing the passing talent and swapping outlandish tales. Sexy, intelligent, predatory, they are women of their time. But can we believe their wild and wicked descriptions of their erotic exploits?Linda Jaivin's sizzling debut plays havoc with our ideas of truth, sex and power. With a new introduction by Krissy Kneen, author of Affection and Triptych.Linda Jaivin is the author of eight books.

She lives in Brisbane with her husband and no pets.'Erotic escapism at its best, with a touch of humour and a touch of class; a blend of fetishism, fun and kiwi fruit!' New Woman'It is a delicious, bravura piece of comic and erotic writing, with an opening that will change your view of late-night supermarket shopping forever.' Age'A high-spirited comedy of manners only thinly veiled as erotica...Jaivin never loses sight of her self-declared goal, which is to wrench the writing of erotica from its male practitioners, dress it up with style and sly humour and restore it to women.'
