Soft cover (black textured card cover with white text and back and front images); 152pp

A writer sits in a two-roomed Waiheke Island bach, stripping Oscar Wilde and himself of their personalities. Outside, an actress from Paris passes – an actress with a colourful and cosmopolitan background of Swiss finishing school and Holloway Prison. The love affair between professional recorder and “a bitch in deep freeze” is told in alternating voices and with a chorus of idiosyncratic individuals who add to the plot’s intrigues while sometimes distracting from its direction. It’s a philosophical as well as physical affair: the carefully note-booked thoughts on men, women and the bits in between are often provocative but not often assimilated. Short-listed (and justifiably so) for the Heinemann Reed Fiction Award, this first novel is exact, exacting and dense with energy--New Zealand Listener
