But it’s not enough to distinguish itself from any other erotica in the end, and not enough to disguise that this is the kind of book that will drop lines like “She looked every bit the fashion editor she was”. I did have that with that.
The best of friends, they meet at trendy cafes and restaurants to eye the passing talent and to swap stories about their wilder sexual encounters. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Can we believe the tales these women are telling?

Nov 08, Mandy rated it really liked it. By the same token, Eat Me hits too close to home; being single in your 30s sounds terrifying. So, why did you decide to do that book, which was a little bit different from your usual material?

Linda Jaivin: Best-selling author of Eat Me
This book is not for everyone. It was the new biography. That includes translations as well as everything else. I had no idea if I would ever actually be able to step foot in China, but the history was so interesting. If the pages are stuck together, it’s only because I had a cold.
And if you read a lot you will know what good writing is. Eat Me seemed more of a way to pass off porn than a story about the lives of four women. So, what happened was I put it in a drawer. When I was about 29 I wrote my second novel and I was very, very close to finishing this one. Jul 18, Taylor rated it it was ok Shelves: Not everybody is going to be a great writer.
So, that took me to Oakland, California, and the Californian State Historical Archives, and biographies of wild women in San Francisco at the turn of the century, and so on and so forth. She has firm control over her material and a talent for slicing through the pretension with the precision of a sushi knife.
Considering she’s also written Rock’n’Roll Babes From Outerspacethe novel equivalent of the bizarrest of the bizarre sleazy B-movies, just reinforces the fact.
Partly as a result of this, neither the characters or their relationships are really developed, and in the end Eat Me is more a series of comic erotic vignettes than a novel. I admire lind who can, who can be consistent and yet fresh. Valerie What made you decide to do funny, erotic stuff? Want to Read Currently Reading Read. To view it, click here.

Who want to write books? I appreciate details like splitting a Eat Me was published inwell and truly the past now, as it’s difficult to remember a world in which talking loudly on your Mobile Phone about “E-Mail” made you sound like a wanker. This is women’s erotica, mostly food-based and set in Sydney. The municipal archives were wonderful there.
