Keel Kissing Bottom
Random House of Canada, 1998 - 251 pages
With a writing style reminiscent of Annie Proulx, Susan Swan and Tom Robbins, Elizabeth de Freitas is a truly beguiling writer with a sharp nose for the absurd and a gift for lush, lyrical prose. Darkly humorous, Keel Kissing Bottom is a quirky and magical tale of the desperate ways in which we all attempt to subvert the laws of love.
