Join Avid Reader to celebrate the launch of Krissy Kneen's latest novel, The Adventures of Holly White and the Incredible Sex Machine where she will be in-conversation with John Birmingham.
Holly wears a ring that says True Love Waits and worries because her boyfriend isn’t trying to persuade her otherwise. Then a boy in her English tute invites her to join his book club.
Shocked to find herself at ‘sex club’, plunged into in the classics of erotic literature, Holly soon becomes fascinated: by the strange new world of Eros, by the increasing power she senses in her own body—and by a weird blue glow emanating from the most private part of her self.
But Salter and Nabokov are one thing. When Holly encounters The Infernal Desire Machines of Dr Hoffman—quickly followed by the infamous orgone generator of Wilhelm Reich—things are set to explode.
An amazing literary sci-fi superhero sex romp from Australia’s genre-bending queen of erotica.
