This is an auction for CHOO WOO by Lloyd Jones.

"CHOO WOO is the disturbing story of the sexual abuse of a young girl by her stepfather, whose sinister baby talk gives the story its title. From the author of the Booker short-listed Mr Pip."

"CHOO WOO faces up to fiendishly difficult terrain - the portrayal of adolescent abuse and manipulation - head on."
- New Zealand Listener

"When Ben moves in with his lover Vivienne, the words of a game - 'choo woo' - take on a sinister new meaning in his seduction of her daughter, Natalie. As Natalie's father, Charlie, scrutinises the past and tries to piece together his daughter's story, he uncovers a labyrinth of secrets, lies, guilt and betrayal, and is forced into a gradual slide into the heart of darkness."

'Choo Woo is a book that arouses a passionate response in the reader. It is beautifully written, tight and well crafted and it's about what none of us want to face: dark taboo passions that bubble below the surface of domestic life. This is a book of enormous risk for an established fiction writer... To publish such a book takes a deal of faith for a publisher, too. At Penguin Australia we are not afraid of a book that is seen to be hard or challenging. Talk about it. Argue about it. And appreciate that fiction allows someone like Lloyd Jones to take on such a controversial subject with passion and veracity.'
- Julie Gibbs, Executive Publisher, Penguin Books Australia

"It's a very moral story indeed, superbly written and powerfully illuminating."
- Dominion Post
