Overview

A deliciously disarming debut novel about a twenty-something Londoner who discovers that she may have been looking for love &; and pleasure &; in all the wrong places (i.e. from men).

Julia has had enough. Enough of the sex noises her roommate makes. Enough of her dead-end government job. Enough of the one-night stand who accused her of breaking his penis. The only thing she hasn&;t had enough of is orgasms; she hasn&;t had proper sex in three years.

So when Julia gets invited to a warehouse party in a part of town where trendy people who have lots of sex go on a Friday night, she readily accepts. And that night she meets someone: a figurative artist, who also happens to be a woman.

Julia&;s sexual awakening begins; her new lesbian life is exhilarating. She finds her tribe at queer swing dancing classes, and guided by her new lover Sam, she soon discovers London&;s gay bars and BDSM clubs . . .  and the complexities of polyamory. Soon it becomes clear that Sam needs to call the shots, and Julia&;s newfound liberation comes to bear a suspicious resemblance to entrapment . . . 

In at the Deep End is an unforgettable and audacious odyssey through the pitfalls and seductions we encounter on the treacherous path to love and self. 


Enduring a dead-end job and three-year romantic dry spell, Julia accepts an invitation to a trendy warehouse party and rediscovers her sexuality as a lesbian before her new lover reveals a darker nature. A first novel. 50,000 first printing.
