Until recently, Julia hadn’t had sex in three years.
• a one-night stand is accusing her of breaking his penis;
• a sexually confident lesbian is making eyes at her over confrontational modern art;
• and she’s about to learn that she’s been looking for love and satisfaction in all the wrong places.
Frank, filthy and very, very funny, In at the Deep End is a brilliant debut from a major new talent.
