This is a novel for those who never risk more than a cappuccino and Death by Chocolate at their local cafe. Or for those who'd rather knit while Rome burns. Or those who'd rent a concert hall to perform their own concerto - if they could ever write beyond the first measure. Or those born to win Silk at the Bar. Or those who just dream of women with buck teeth and brown eyes. The much awaited satiric novel by the Winner of the Queensland Premier's Poetry Award and the Steele Rudd Highly Commended short story collection Triangles."

About the author (2003)

David P Reiter was influenced by Robert Frost's advice that literature should 'begin with delight and end in wisdom'. The sub-text is there for those who seek it. He is particularly interested in the "battle of the sexes" as it's been compounded by the rise of feminism. 'We have women afraid to be women, and men afraid to be men,' he says. 'In the midst of all this, children happen, and the noose tightens. The only way to stay sane is to learn to laugh at the absurdity of trying to make sense of it all. The best satire does that -- if only people are willing to listen.'
