*********** I ordered it! I've been trying to pick up on a few Australian hardboiled novels. I don't think I've ever read an erotic lesbian love story. Hmm... first time for everything I guess. Is it merely... suggestive? Or do they get down and dirty? ;-)

You warned me that it's written in verse, so I won't complain if I don't like it. I've only read a couple long things in verse. Cooleridge's RIME OF THE ANCIENT MARINER and then GILGAMESH just here recently. Don't really think they would be considered novels, though.
