'Entrancing...fabulous... Its language retains the clear music of poetry' Sunday Telegraph

Sexing the Cherry celebrates the power of the imagination as it playfully juggles with our perception of history and reality.

It is a story about love and sex; lies and truths; and twelve dancing princesses who lived happily ever after, but not with their husbands.

With a new introduction by the author
