For those interested my review of Dorothy Porter’s The Monkey’s Mask was posted on the RMITV In Review blog last night to coincide with last nights episode of the ABC’s, The Book Club. This post is a bit late but I thought it would be worth doing anyway, here’s a little snippet of the review:
“I want you, trouble,
on the rocks.”
Dorothy Porter’s The Monkey’s Mask is one of many novels I probably wouldn’t have picked up at all if it weren’t for uni, but I’m thankful I did. Porter manages to seamlessly blend the genres of crime thriller and lesbian romance into nearly three-hundred pages of verse. Yes, you heard me correctly! Verse. This somewhat unusual combination of crime, passion, and poetry makes for an intensely engaging read right to the last line….
