When rock 'n' roll chick Mercury meets left-wing feminist Hermes at art school, they stumble on a twisted path out of the closet and commit a random act which ends up changing both their lives forever.
A sharply focused, un-sentimental tale of love and art.
"Reading it is like watching a newly discovered Mike Leigh film. Its breathless, wry, but earnest narrator brings you back to the butterflies-in-the-gut feeling of first love, in this case one that goes from barely daring to whisper its name, to howling it through a cranked-up amp. It's the queer British 1990's answer to Patti Smith's Just Kids." - Laurie Loftus
